Ongoing project: Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program.

 ​​​​​​ Angela Fuller, Lars Rudstam, Patrick Sullivan, Martin Feehan (Cornell), Rena Borkhataria (University of Florida). (Funded by the Doris Duke Foundation)

This grant from the Doris Duke Foundation provided stipends for four Cornell students interested in conservation and diversity. The students are provided summer stipends for two summers, the first with a research program (in 2019, two students were at CBFS working on gobies and mussels and two were at Fort Drum working on deer management), and the second summer with a conservation organization. During the year, the scholars meet each second week with a graduate student mentor (with Martin Feehan). They also take a one credit class with leadership training and diversity issues in the conservation field.
