More than 2.8 million students have participated in a Duke TIP talent search since 1980 and more than forty thousand students have attended our renowned summer and academic year programs.

How you can get involved:

We need alumni to staff our summer programs, mentor current students, speak on TIP's behalf to schools, share their professional expertise with today's TIPsters, create internship and employment opportunities for younger alumni, and contribute to need-based financial aid for deserving TIP students.

Our global alumni base now includes pioneering scientists, technological innovators, lifesaving doctors, groundbreaking educators, professional athletes, well-known journalists, senior government officials, and thousands more successful, motivated professionals who excel across a variety of disciplines.

Here are our Distinguished Alumni Award winners, but we’re proud of all of our alumni—and proud of the role TIP played in their success. 

Duke TIP is now building an alumni network to keep our former students connected with one another and involved in nurturing today’s gifted students. If you are a TIP alumnus, we invite you to join the network and to be a part of our growing impact. As an alumnus, your participation is crucial to our continuing success.

If you'd like to be more involved, please contact our alumni outreach coordinator. We'd love to have you on board!
