Duke TIP Scholar Weekends provide opportunities for academically talented students in grades 8-11 to take short courses during weekend-long programs at the University of Houston campus. To be eligible, students must be participants in the Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search or have been identified as academically gifted/talented by local school criteria. Courses introduce topics that might not be available in students’ local schools. They provide enrichment, sharpen skills, and help students define pathways to college majors and careers. In addition, they provide a glimpse into the collegiate experience and an opportunity for students to interact with similarly motivated students.
Duke TIP will not be offering Scholar Weekends at University of Houston in the Spring 2020. We will be offering in the Fall 2020 (November 2020) with the new and improved courses as part of the Duke TIP program.
