Meet the WIN Scholars: Duke’s Next Generation of Women Leaders

Congratulations to our Duke WIN Scholars! These young women are selected by Duke’s Financial Aid Office with an eye toward selecting young women who demonstrate leadership qualities that can be further encouraged and cultivated through contact with the WIN community.

Join us in growing the WIN Scholarship Endowment to support Duke's next generation of women leaders by making a secure gift.
