If you are an educator interested in referring students to our Summer Studies Program, you are welcome to contact us for more information on how you can become a Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search school partner.

In referring students to our program, please remember that we welcome students from all economic backgrounds and offer millions of dollars in financial aid each year to ensure economic diversity in our summer community. 

Seasonal employment

Each summer, we hire dozens of experienced gifted educators and school support staff to serve as our Summer Studies staff. If you are an educator interested in working with Duke TIP as seasonal staff, please visit our employment section for more information on available instructional, residential, and administrative staff positions for next summer, as well as job requirements, salaries, and locations.
