Ask for an update


Duke University's Talent Identification Program is an annual event held for academically gifted students of grade VII and VIII across India. This Summer Studies Program co-sponsored by Duke TIP and Shiv Nadar University (SNU), provides superb academic opportunities and dynamic residential and social experiences to selected students. The three-week program takes place in a unique learning environment designed to motivate and challenge academically talented students. Within a supportive and nurturing campus setting, it gives highly talented students the opportunity to stretch themselves beyond their self-perceived expectations and limits. Participants explore topics ranging from environmental engineering to entrepreneurial leadership, engage in inspiring residential programming, experience life on a university campus, and develop lasting friendships with academically-gifted peers from across India.

Parikrma students have been selected for the TIP every year for the last 6 years. The selection process includes essay writing, debates and group discussions in addition to the student's academic performance and proactiveness. This year, 4 Parikrma students have been selected to attend the program at Shiv Nadar University near Delhi from 10th to 30th May 2015.

A senior Parikrma teacher will escort the students to Delhi, drop them at SNU and return to Bangalore. The same teacher will travel again from Bangalore to Delhi to bring  the students back.The cost of travelling by train to Haryana and back is about Rs. 6000/- per student. Including the cost of our escorting teacher's travel, we need to raise Rs.30,000/-, so our students may attend this program.
