FELLOWSHIPS by field

Applying for a scholarship or fellowship requires that you be willing to commit time, energy, and hard work which you might ordinarily devote to other activities and that you recognize that the effort you invest in the application process will be worthwhile not only because it offers you the chance to receive the recognition and the financial reward which will help you realize your dreams, but also – or primarily – because by engaging in a reflective process, grappling with the intellectual challenges, and seeking ways to achieve excellence and make a difference, you will have a potentially transformative experience and one that may help you define who you are and who you want to become.

The goal of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington is to promote biocultural conservation – a broad endeavor to preserve the integrity of communities, their interdependent members (both humans and other species), and the ecosystems in which they reside. In DDCSP@UW, we center equity and inclusion in nature conservation by applying critical analysis to human interactions with lands, waters, and other species, and by being responsive to the needs and values of all communities. This program integrates multiple academic disciplines and ways of knowing, from a variety of conservation practitioners, to support scholars in finding a conservation practice and career path that is right for them. In our first summer, we critically analyze the intersections of biodiversity conservation, cultural identities, and environmental justice. The first summer is designed to expose scholars to a wide range of conservation issues, the complex physical and cultural landscapes that conservation solutions emerge from, and work together to untangle the societal frameworks and forces that drive conservation. The second summer is an opportunity for scholars to deepen skills, knowledge, and networks within conservation practice. Design and implement a collaborative internship project with conservation professionals.  The second summer is designed to build upon the analysis of the first summer, explore career pathways, and cultivate a community of practice. Concurrent with their internships, scholars also engage in DDCSP@UW programming that aims to strengthen individual and collective agency for change.

These two aspects are inseparable, and you will become an expert in both after a comprehensive initial training program. Preference for candidates who have a driver’s license, teaching experience, a teaching qualification, e.g., CELTA, DELTA, and TEFL, have studied a second language at school or university, and can speak some basic Japanese.
