Doris Duke Conservation Fellowship Program:
The Environment Program of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation created the Doris Duke Conservation Fellowship program to identify and support future conservation leaders. The Fellowship supports students who are enrolled in multidisciplinary master's programs at partner universities, and who are committed to careers as practicing conservationists.
Established in 1997 and administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, this program supports outstanding graduate students enrolled in master's degree programs at eight of the nation's leading environmental schools: Cornell University, Duke University, Florida A&M University, Northern Arizona University, University of California at Santa Barbara, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin and Yale University.
