Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program Seeks Applicants
By Erika Zavaleta and Justin Cummings

A huge opportunity for conservation is to better harness the passion,
creativity and values of an increasingly diverse society. To address
the challenge of the diversity gap in conservation and to serve
up-and-coming leaders in the field, 2001 Smith Fellow Erika Zavaleta
and Dr. Justin Cummings have initiated the Doris Duke Conservation
Scholars Program at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC).
The Program, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, will
provide two paid summers of training and internship to early-career
undergraduates with potential to diversify the field, from any U.S.
four-year institution. Current freshmen and sophomores can apply to
the program until February 15, 2016 at
and faculty and staff can nominate students directly.
