Applications are now available. Applications must include the online application form, two letters of recommendation emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and copies of your college and high school transcripts emailed to email@example.com. High school transcripts are optional but encouraged.
The University of Florida is the lead partner among the five partnering universities. The five successful Doris Duke Conservation Scholars will be selected by the University of Idaho, with oversight from the University of Florida.
Students from all backgrounds who attend or are planning to attend a collaborating university may apply to the Program as Sophomores. Acceptance into the 2014 class of scholars is contingent on acceptance and planned enrollment at a collaborating university in Fall of 2014.
Yes. Please contact us if you do not fit the “traditional” status of “Sophomore” to discuss your situation. The expectation is that students in our program will require two more years to graduate.
No, as long as you have an interest in nature and might consider a conservation-related career you are eligible for the Program.
If your transcripts arrive before you finish your application we will keep them on file and add them to your application package. It is better to ask for letters of recommendation as soon as you know you will be applying to the program rather than waiting until after you've finished your application.
