The Institute for Conservation Research offers Undergraduate Summer Student Fellowships in each of our Research teams: Recovery Ecology, Population Sustainability, Community Engagement, Global Partnerships, 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. 

The application process begins the first week in December each year, with an application deadline of January 31. Read our FAQ here. When the application process opens, you will be able to apply here (select San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research).
