Announcement: Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (App Due: 2/8/19)

Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program
Deadline to apply: February 8, 2019

Applications for the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (conservationscholars.ucsc.eduat the University of California Santa Cruz are now available. Each March we select 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program centered on the summers between academic years. Our goal is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines, who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land, wildlife and water.  We focus our efforts on serving college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with two years of college left at a stage when we can support their undergraduate careers and their choices as they graduate.  Students who attend or are transferring to any four-year institution in the US, its territories and Native nations are eligible.  US citizens, permanent residents, DACA and Dreamer students are eligible to apply. International students are not eligible for the program.

During the first year Scholars participate in an eight-week, intensive summer course integrating conservation design, leadership and research experiences while traveling with a close group of peers and mentors. During the second summer, Scholars pursue eight-week research and practice internships with nationally recognized conservation organizations and agencies.  A professional development retreat after the second summer brings together the Scholar cohort and prepares them to apply for jobs and graduate school. Throughout the two years and beyond, we work with home mentors at each Scholar’s campus to provide ongoing support. Scholars receive travel and lodging support and a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life.

Applications for the 2019 class of Scholars are available on the website and due February 8, 2019. 

For more information, visit conservationscholars.ucsc.edu or email the Program Director, Dr. Justin Cummings, jacummin@ucsc.edu.
