Is the Doris Duke Conservation Scholar Program over?

The Doris Duke Foundation has made the difficult decision to end the Conservation Scholars Program after the end of the 2023-2024 program. The experience of the 2023 cohort  will not be impacted by this decision, and these 20 scholars will have the full two-summer programming, including 2024 internships and Conservation Summit. All three programs are closing in January 2025, including  the University of California-Santa Cruz, the University of Washington, and the Collaborative program.

Can I host an internship in summer 2024?

Yes! We will host internships for the 20 scholars in the 2023 cohort from June 10-Aug 13th, 2024. We are always looking for interesting projects, new partnerships, and committed mentors. Please reach out to Dr. Melissa Mark or Dr. Martha Groom

What will happen to the DDCSP alumni network?

DDF has committed to working with Environmental Leadership Program and the Alumni to determine the future of the over 700 members of the  DDCSP Alumni Network. If you are alum of the program, contact for support.
