Duke University School of Medicine places a high priority on need-based financial assistance for its students with a particular emphasis on grants and low-interest loans. In academic year 2020-21, the Financial Aid Office administered approximately $55 million in scholarship funding from school, federal loans, and private sources to over 82 percent of our student body.

Duke maintains a strict policy of selecting candidates without regard to their ability to pay for medical school. Financial aid application information will be distributed to students during the interview process. The financial aid process should be completed by the deadline to ensure a financial aid award has been processed before you need to make a decision about attending Duke School of Medicine.

We invite you to browse these pages and feel free to contact us if you do not find the information you need.

Constitution Day

September 17

"We The People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union...."

These are the first words of the Constitution of the United States of America. On September 17, 1787 the Founding Fathers of this country signed and sent this document out to the Thirteen Colonies for ratification. Delaware was the first to ratify the Constitution on December 7, 1787; New Hampshire was the ninth state to ratify the Constitution (June 21, 1788) thus fulfilling the required ¾ majority for the Constitution to go into effect.

In 2004 Congress drafted a bill, signed by President George W. Bush on December 8th, 2004 (public law 108-447), that designates every September 17th as Constitution Day.
