Hello Sarah,
Thanks for your support! This program will be anchored at CU Boulder. The students will apply to a call, like many fellowships programs, and we will have an extensive and diverse group of folks who will be on our recruitment and selection committee.
The association with Doris Duke Conservation Scholars is that I used to run UW program, and I am still a co-Principle Investigator and a steering committee member, however there is not yet an official partnership between them and this program, but I definitely in close contact with all the DDCS programs.
While there are differences in the program that I am launching at CU (focus on international and sustainability whereas DDCSP is US only and focused on Conservation), there are so many places where our collaborative efforts would benefit all. Once launched, I can envision collaborating with the storytelling events and larger conferences that bring these amazing students together and network.

Hannah,
I would love to talk more. This program is intended for undergraduates at the moment. An official partnership however, aimed at networking and mentoring would be a wonderful addition to the students' training. We have made a few connections with Future Earth and as we develop the program further we will figure out how we can build a synergistic partnership!
