Opportunity to Host Summer Interns through the UW Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program

Are you a natural resource organization in Washington doing on-the-ground conservation? Do you have the capacity to host a team of interns this summer? The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center is partnering with the University of Washington Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP) to help support internship placements for summer 2020.

The DDCSP at the University of Washington is a multi-summer, undergraduate learning experience that supports emerging conservation leaders to develop unique perspectives and skills by drawing connections between conservation, individual and community identities, biodiversity and environmental justice.

In their second summer, Scholars partner with a regional organization to complete a 6.5 week internship focused on conservation, equity, and inclusion. This is an opportunity for Scholars to provide meaningful support to a partner organization, while developing professional and interpersonal skills. At the end of the 8-week program, scholars will share their insights and experiences at the DDCSP annual Conservation Scholar Summit, which is open to the public.

If you would like to host a UW Doris Duke Conservation Scholar this summer, please complete the Conservation Project Proposal by January 31st, 2020. Please submit a proposal for each unique internship project you have available and contact ddcsp@uw.edu with any questions.
