Kiya Rahn is a sophomore student interested in developing the accessibility of natural resources to underserved communities. She aims to broaden wildlife education to K-12 age groups, and focuses on endemic species and conservation at a local level. She hopes to bring awareness to the public’s role in management policy and build critical connections to the natural world through the fine arts.

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.
