Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Duke Youth Programs, Duke Summer College, Duke Summer Academy, and Duke Accelerated STEM Academy on-campus programs have been cancelled for the 2020 summer season to ensure the health and safety of our participants and staff. Application and program fees paid to Duke for these cancelled programs will be refunded. Unfortunately, Duke cannot reimburse the cost of any travel or supplies purchased in preparation for our programs. We apologize for any inconvenience this announcement may cause. We hope to offer various online learning enrichment opportunities later this summer and will update our website when more information is available. We thank you for your patience as we process refunds as quickly as possible. Questions may be directed to: learnmore@duke.edu.
