Health Insurance

All Intensive STEM Academy participants are required to have health insurance that is written by a U.S.-based company. Short-term health insurance is offered by many U.S. companies such as USI Affinity Travel Services ( and is needed to pay for any medical attention you may need.  While travel insurance may assist you with travel costs in the event of an emergency, it will not satisfy our program’s medical insurance requirement, as many policies do not cover medical bills. Prior to attending the Intensive STEM Academy, you will be required to submit proof of U.S.-based health insurance. Please note that participants are not permitted to use Duke Student Health Services, including Duke’s Counseling and Psychological Services.
