Get Involved

Bass Connections engages students and faculty from across the university to address compelling challenges. Students at all levels can participate at any time while at Duke. Faculty can get involved through their own teaching and research. And Duke alumni and friends can give to Bass Connections and take part in the Bass Challenge to increase the impact of their gifts.

Interested in becoming a member of a 2018-19 Bass Connections project team? Sixteen project teams, including two new teams, are recruiting student team members. Applications are open and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Students may apply to up to two teams using the “Apply here” link at the bottom of each team page. The deadline to apply is August 23 at 11:59 p.m.

Please read the project descriptions carefully to learn about the unique student opportunities available on each team. Project teams last for two semesters and include course credit.

Students should note that spots on teams are limited as the majority of positions were filled during Bass Connections’ main application cycle last spring. Students interested in applying for a year-long Bass Connections project team during the main application cycle will be able to explore 2019-20 teams beginning in January 2019. Learn more.
