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.
The Spring Duke Scholar Weekend will take place on April 13 and 14, 2019.
