How to Apply

Students who accept their offer of admission to Duke have access to the DGYP application on their Duke Admissions portal beginning in March.

The application will offer you the opportunity to describe your gap year plans, to explain why your plans are important to you, and, if you are requesting funding, to outline your budget. The application should include your plans for the entire year, even if you only request funding for some of your activities or do not request funding at all.

We do not expect students to have their gap year plans confirmed at the time of application.
