Screen Shot 2016-01-15 at 6.19.53 PM

The Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP) at the University of Washington (UW) is a multi-summer, undergraduate experiential-learning program focused on the themes of biodiversity, food, climate, and water across urban and wild spaces.  DDCSP places conversation practices at the intersection of individual identities, community culture and values, and the opportunities and limits the environment provides.  Scholars participate in an intensive conservation skills and leadership program; work with agency, faculty and graduate student mentors on paid group research projects and internships; attend national meetings; and engage in mentoring and social networks.

The program is targeting freshmen and sophomores due to the program’s multi-summer opportunities.  Thus, juniors and seniors are not eligible to apply.  Dreamers and DACA students are encouraged to apply.

DDCSP will cover all participant travel, insurance, food, and lodging costs during the 8-week summer student experience; in addition, students will receive a weekly stipend of $500.

The program is open to all majors (including “undecided”).  In fact, they are looking for a broad mix of students, from ecology to film studies.  Also, you don’t need to have field or outdoor (camping and backpacking) experience.

The deadline to apply is January 29, 2016
