DDCSP@UW is a paid, two-summer experiential learning experience that explores conservation across themes of climate, water, food and ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest. By exploring intersections of biodiversity conservation and environmental justice across both urban and rural contexts, emerging scholars develop skills and perspectives needed to expand and redefine what it means to be a "conservation professional".
Open to PhD students enrolled at US graduate institutions and conducting plant-based scientific field research, the BIA program provides each Fellow with:
1) $5,000 for use towards research-related expenses at sites in the US or abroad; 2) an all-expenses paid trip to Phipps Conservatory to engage in science outreach training and opportunities to translate and communicate his or her research to non-scientific, public audiences through written, visual and/or oral means; and 3) subsequent opportunities to connect his or her research with the public through programs, exhibits, and other outreach venues.
