Interested in applying?

DDCSP@UW is designed for students who want to pursue their passion for nature conservation, environmental justice and are at the beginning of their studies at a four-year college or university. Students from two-year colleges will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants do not necessarily need to be natural science-oriented. In fact, we are looking for a broad mix of students from any and all majors with varying interests, skills and perspectives who  demonstrate a commitment to the environment, equity and are curious, creative and enthusiastic!

Our Application period is now Closed. Please check back in the fall of 2019!
