Duke TIP's 4th/5th Grade Talent Search is the first chance for families of qualified students to participate in one of our talent searches and to gain access to other programs within Duke TIP. Eligibility for enrollment is an honor and indicates outstanding intellectual ability. Participation in the 4th/5th Grade Talent Search provides students with exciting, stimulating and challenging opportunities through online lessons, publications, contests, the Duke TIP Book Club and an optional above-level testing experience, the EXPLORE® test.

Students are chosen for DUKE TIP either as a fourth or fifth grader. Once enrolled, benefits of participation continue through the student's sixth grade year. If a student previously enrolled as a fourth grader, they do not enroll again. The non-refundable enrollment fee for 2012 is $35. This fee covers all publications and exclusive online benefits through the student's sixth grade year.

Students must score in the 95th percentile or higher on a grade-level standardized achievement test, aptitude test, mental-ability test, approved state criterion-referenced test, or 125 or above on an IQ test.

One of the two most recent administrations is acceptable for qualification. For most fourth grade students this represents scores from either the third grade or the second grade. For fifth grade students this would represent scores from either the fourth grade or the third grade.
