Tuition Grant Examples
Only tuition expenses are eligible for reimbursement. If the scholarship is not designated towards tuition and not greater than room, board, and fees then the scholarship has no impact on payment.
Applying for the Children's Tuition Program
- Complete the parent section (page 2) of the Duke University Children's Tuition Grant Program application, and forward it to the appropriate department at your child's school. If your child will be attending one of the participating schools, you will complete the online application that is available under "My Benefits" on Duke@Work and follow the instructions there. If your child's school does not appear in this list of participating schools, you must complete a paper application.
The application must be completed for every term. Please note, a birth certificate is required for a first time student. In addition, a marriage certificate, is required for a stepchild.
- Please direct your child's school to complete the school section (page 3) and return the completed application by mail to the following address:
Duke University Benefits
705 Broad Street
Durham, NC 27708-0502
Please note: No faxes or earlier versions of the application will be accepted.
Last year, several schools implemented restrictions related to the release of the information requested on the application. However, this information is needed to determine the grant amount. If the school is restricting the provision of the information, it will be your responsibility to provide appropriate documentation (i.e. financial aid/student award notice, awards/aid on school letterhead, registration statement/receipt) via mail or fax (919-681-8774) to Duke Benefits.
Please note that the documentation must specifically identify all financial aid or awards as undesignated or designated for tuition. Any scholarships, grants or other forms of assistance (excluding loans, work study and student or parent payments) that have not been identified will be treated as designated for tuition for purposes of calculating the grant amount.
Questions may be directed to Duke Benefits at email@example.com.
Re-certification of your continued eligibility, your child's enrollment, and the school's tuition, room and board, fees and financial aid costs are required each semester.
Upon receipt of the completed form, Duke Benefits will determine eligibility, calculate the benefit amount, request that the payment be processed and send a confirmation notice to the e-mail address provided on your application. Payment is generally mailed to the school within 10 business days.
Please contact Duke Benefits if you do not receive a confirmation of payment within 14 days of the school submitting your completed application. Reminder - payments for the fall semester will not be disbursed prior to July 1.
The University reserves the right at any time to change or terminate this benefit or your eligibility for benefits under the plan.
