Bronfman Fellowships

BYFI is a fully-funded Fellowship that is among the most prestigious programs available to outstanding Jewish students of all backgrounds who are in their junior year of high school. The purpose of the Bronfman Fellowships is to invest in a cohort of bright young Jews who will be leaders of tomorrow in all areas of Jewish and public life. We seek intellectually curious and mature applicants with a strong character.

The program includes an all-expense paid five-week trip to Israel and two seminars in New York City where Fellows explore Jewish identity, Jewish ideas, and connect to other young Jews from both Israel and America. It should be made clear that no Jewish educational background is required for eligibility. They select Fellows who are religiously observant and those only marginally affiliated with Judaism.

The academic and professional successes of the 1000+ alumni reflect the high quality of the program and highlight the kinds of benefits that can redound to its participants. For example, over 50% of BYFI alumni have attended Ivy League schools. Indeed The Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel has been listed by Chuck Hughes, former Senior Admissions Officer at Harvard, in his book, “What it Really Takes to Get into the Ivy League and other Highly Selective Colleges,” as one of the programs which “act as filters for admissions officers to validate candidates who have been similarly identified by other organizations for talent and promise.” Professionally, BYFI alumni comprise former U.S. Supreme Court Clerks, celebrated authors, journalists and producers with leading news organizations such as The New York Times and NBC, and numerous teachers, scholars and clergy.

The Fellowships are awarded competitively to twenty-six individuals who will be entering the twelfth grade of school in the fall of 2016. Fellowship awards are based on merit.

If you are  interested in our program, please send  their names and email addresses and  go to the website, The application deadline is January 6, 2016.

Health Professions Recruitment and Exposure Program (HPREP) 

HPREP is a program offered through the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) chapter at Duke SOM. Specifically, the program is aimed at minority high school students 9th-12th grade interested in the health care field. In HPREP, high school students are exposed to the biomedical and health sciences through an enriching curriculum that is designed to encourage, empower, and excite our participants. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings from 9-1 and cover topics including college applications, hands on physical exams, standardized patient interviews, and tours of medical facilities. Each student is required to participate in a mock interview, give a 5-10 minute presentation about a disease process, and complete a personal statement. Topics are presented in a fun, interactive, and captivating way so that students stay enthusiastic about learning. At the end of the program all students are eligible for the Delano Merriweather Scholarship (one $1,000 and two $500). Link to apply:

On the day of the event, students can be taken to our on-campus drop-off point where they will be met by excited volunteers and led to Splash’s help room and registration area. After a quick orientation, students will be led to their first classes and will begin their day! Volunteers will be available all day to help students that have trouble finding buildings. At the end of Splash, students can be picked up back at the drop-off point.

We are very excited to be able to make Duke Splash free for all students. We wouldn’t have been able to do so without the generous support of many different donors. If you would like to help us provide future programs at no cost to students, we will be accepting not tax-deductible donations. Donations can either be cash or checks made out to “Duke Splash”.
