Camellia, current ninth grader
“I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, for without it I most definitely would not have been able to attend. I hope to repay the favor down the road to another student in need by becoming a successful scientist myself and one day having the ability to teach others and donate to this excellent and inspiring program.”
Sarah, current ninth grader
“I will forever be grateful to you for helping me go this summer. I hope with all my heart that I can go back next year, one last time, as a fourth year with an orange lanyard around my neck. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can never thank you enough, because going to Duke TIP has been the best experience of my life.”
Mom of Grant, current tenth grader
“Grant dreamed of having the same opportunity [as his brother]. However, my husband had lost his job eighteen months earlier, and we were not able to afford it financially. We learned about the Duke TIP financial aid, and so we applied, and prayed. Just one week later, our prayers were answered. Thanks to you.”
