The Duke SPIRE Fellows is a deeply responsive mentoring and academic support system for high-achieving undergraduates from diverse backgrounds with an interest in pursuing a major and/or career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Duke SPIRE – which stands for STEM Pathways for Inclusion, Readiness, and Excellence – builds on the power of academic mentoring and STEM learning communities. These communities take classes together, work through homework and projects together, and support each other. SPIRE also provides high-level STEM tutoring, academic skills development, and access to a network of STEM role-models/mentors. As a Duke SPIRE Fellow, you gain opportunities to learn how to network with faculty, alumni, and industry leaders – and in turn, envision your own successful career path.
