Summer 2019 NRS Field Quarter

California Ecology and Conservation brings together 27 undergraduates from across the UC system for seven weeks of intensive learning at NRS reserves. Students will gain strong independent scientific research skills while immersed in the training grounds of the UC natural reserves, from Big Sur to the Mojave Desert, from coastal redwoods to California grasslands to high altitude bristlecone pines. Experienced field instructors help undergraduates transform into scientists!

Each March Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program selects 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program centered on the summers between academic years.  Our goal is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines, who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land, wildlife and water. We focus our efforts 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.  Students who attend or are transferring to any four-year institution in the US, its territories and Native nations are eligible.

Scholars receive a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life.
