2019 UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program

Each March, the UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program selects 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program during the summer. The program’s 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.

Learn More

What: 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, the program works with home mentors at each Scholar’s campus to provide ongoing support. Scholars receive a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life.

To Apply: The program’s application can be found here. Applications are due February 8, 2019.

For more information, please visit the program’s website or contact the Program Director, Dr. Justin Cummings, at jacummin@ucsc.edu.
