San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance offers Undergraduate Summer Student Fellowships in our Conservation Science teams: Recovery Ecology, Population Sustainability, Community Engagement, Conservation Genetics, Plant Conservation, Reproductive Sciences, and Disease Investigations.

Current undergraduate students must be officially associated with a college or university in order to be eligible for the fellowship program. Undergraduates who are currently enrolled in college meet this criterion, as do graduating seniors who are continuing their education in the fall following graduation. Recent graduates who are not continuing their education in fall of the same year are not eligible to apply. Fellowships are 40 hours per week for 12 weeks.

The application window for the 2022 Summer Conservation Science Fellowships is now closed. Information about summer 2023 Conservation Science Fellowships will be available in December 2022.  

Thank you for your interest in Conservation Science.
