Sloan Scholars orientation

The Early Start Research Immersion Program typically runs from July to mid-August in the summer before newly admitted Sloan Scholars matriculate, ending just before new student orientation.

Early Start for summer 2023 will consist of virtual and in-person events, with virtual events mainly in July and in-person events in August. These programs will run from July 10 through August 11. We will contact Sloan Scholars with more information about the programming.

Early Start programming is designed to achieve two major objectives:

  1. Give Scholars an early immersion in their departments and labs
  2. Introduce Scholars to resources and opportunities that speak directly to what it means to be a graduate student in their department and at Duke
