DukeEngage Support for Undocumented/DACA Students
DukeEngage has become one of Duke University’s signature programs in part because the opportunity is open to all undergraduates who meet the program’s eligibility requirements. Undocumented and DACA students have participated in past summers, and we encourage undocumented and DACA students to continue to apply if they have an interest in an immersive summer of service. We are working with colleagues across the University to continue to serve and support ALL students who are eligible to participate in DukeEngage.
