  • Environmental Science

Having been born and raised on the island of Maui, HawaiĘ»i and being exposed to the beauty and uniqueness of the island’s landscape and its importance in sustaining the livelihoods of the community, I was inspired to learn about the environment and the ways in which we can protect it. I wanted to be with DDCSP@UW with the intention of getting hands on experience with environmental work and research while meeting others who share a similar interest and passion, to me, in the environment. My goal is to get my undergraduate degree in environmental science and later go to law school to become an environmental law attorney in order to protect and preserve the environment through law.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
