College of Natural Resources (CNR) is pleased to announce its participation in the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program. This program will provide undergraduate students with training and mentored research activities in conservation biology and other disciplines relevant to land, water and wildlife conservation. The program is seeking students who not only have a budding academic interest in conservation, but are also committed to increasing the diversity of students and professionals in the conservation field. Students accepted into the program will engage in two summers of paid research and agency internships, work alongside conservation researchers and professionals in outdoors-based research, attend workshops and conferences, and build a network of professional contacts and friendships that will last a lifetime.
If you are a current sophomore interested in the environment, diversity, conservation, and research, please apply! Applications will be available December 1, and more information is available at the program website: http://programs.ifas.ufl.edu/DDCSP/apply.shtml or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
