Applications for the 2019 class of Scholars are available at and are due February 8, 2019.

Twenty early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country are selected to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program centered on the summers between academic years. The goal of this program is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines, who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land. Efforts are focused on serving college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with two years of college left at a stage when we can support their undergraduate careers and their choices as they graduate. The Conservation Scholars receive a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life. Students who attend or are transferring to any four-year institution in the US, its territories and Native nations are eligible.
