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.
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
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 email@example.com for support.
