The Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at The University of Washington (DDCSP@UW) is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 cohort!
About the Program
DDCSP@UW is a paid, multi-summer, undergraduate experiential learning program that explores conservation across climate, water, food and ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest.
A primary goal of the program is to expand what it means to be a “conservation professional.” By connecting conservation to cultural identity, biodiversity and environmental justice DDCSP@UW supports emerging scholars as they develop understandings, skills and perspectives needed to become a conservation change-maker. What does this mean? Watch this video!
The first year experience begins in Seattle and travels through various cultural and ecological landscapes in Washington, from the Olympic Peninsula to the Salish Sea and across the Cascade Mountains into the Yakima Valley, learning about emerging and ongoing issues in conservation along the way. Read more about the first year “Classroom in the Field” here.
**Doris Duke Conservation Scholars will have all travel, food and lodging paid during their 8-week summer experience and will receive a stipend of $4,000 ($500/week).
Who can apply?
We’re looking for 20 freshmen and sophomores to join us for an 8-week conservation immersion course.
Scholars can be from any and all majors (including “undecided”). In fact, we’re specifically looking for a broad mix of students with varying interests, skills and perspectives who demonstrate a commitment to the environment, equity and inclusion and are curious, creative and enthusiastic. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizen, permanent resident or have DACA status granted by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services. (For more on DACA, refer to this link).
** DDCSP@UW seeks to form and support a community of scholars who are representative of various cross-cultural backgrounds and perspectives that span across class, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual identity, sexual orientation and physical ability.

The Wesleyan Sustainability Office is seeking frosh and sophomores to serve as Eco Facilitators for Spring 2017 and the 2017-2018 school year! The Eco Facilitators are a group of about 15 students who work closely with freshman dorms to promote sustainable and environmentally-friendly lifestyles on campus within the context of global climate change and social inequality.
In Spring 2017, EFs will enroll in a semester-long student forum focused on strategies for encouraging sustainable behaviors. Throughout the fall and spring of the 2017-2018 school year, EFs will be paid to apply their ideas through these strategies in dorms, and work with RAs to account for unequal access to resources while promoting sustainable living. Working as an EcoFacilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills and take part in building a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive campus community.
Applications are due by 11:59 PM on Monday, November 21st. There will also be an info session on Monday Nov 14th in Usdan 108 at 12:15 pm. More information, including an FAQ is available at bit.ly/EFs2017. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
