Duke University

Duke University announced it had received $50 million from the Duke Endowment, a private endowment that focuses on supporting causes in North Carolina and South Carolina. That contribution completed the second half of a $100 million investment announced in 2019. It marks the largest award Duke University has ever received.

The funds will be used to advance further the Duke Science and Technology program, designed “to accelerate and expand the recruitment of new faculty in science, medicine, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Commenting on the gift, Duke President Vincent Price said, “This extraordinary gift from The Duke Endowment advances our university’s position as a destination for exceptional and visionary faculty in a competitive global market. These scholars will accelerate discovery and collaborative research across our campus and around the world. Duke’s next century will be one of unbounded intellectual curiosity in which uniquely talented and creative scientists come together in new ways to ask the most difficult questions and try to tackle the most critical challenges of our day.”
