DDCSP@UW: 2020 Internship Project Proposal

Thank you for your interest in partnering with the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP) at the University of Washington!

This 'Internship Project Proposal' form is the primary platform for prospective partner organizations to outline internship projects for DDCSP scholars (our scholars are undergraduates who have completed one year of DDCSP programming, and are entering their junior or senior year). The information provided will be screened by DDCSP@UW staff to identify placements that align with scholars’ professional and personal interests, and then presented to scholars for them to rank preferences. We recommend that you discuss project ideas with DDCSP staff prior to completing this form to ensure optimal alignment with your organizational needs and scholar interests.

The Year 2 Conservation Projects for DDCSP scholars are designed to enhance scholars’ skills, networks, knowledge and understanding of conservation practice. This occurs through engaging with conservation issues in partnership with a host organization (e.g., a government agency, community organization or NGO) who is positioned within the conservation field, or who works at the intersections of biodiversity conservation, cultural identity and environmental justice.

Each scholar intern will conduct a project that will be designed and supported through direct collaboration with their host organization, with additional support from DDCSP staff as needed. Projects should result in an outcome that benefits the host organization while supporting scholars in meeting their learning objectives (e.g., analyzed data set, report, documentary, or conservation action.)

*Proposal deadline: FRIDAY, JANUARY 31st, 2020.

**DDCSP provides a stipend, and covers transportation, food and housing costs for all scholars. Thus, scholars will not incur direct costs to the organization. Site hosts may be asked to assist DDCSP staff in securing lodging for scholars (for non-Seattle based sites), as housing placements can often be more easily identified by those closest to the site.
