Emilie Pilchowski

Colby College

  • Government and Environmental Policy

Emilie Pilchowski attends Colby College in Maine where she studies Environmental Policy and Government. She hopes to harness the power of grassroots organizing to mitigate climate change and mediate environmental conflicts. She is particularly interested in localized, community oriented approaches to these problems. Moreover, having grown up in Guadeloupe, her interest in conservation is centered around the impact of climate change on coastal and island communities.

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.
