Bright Prospect Student 1 of 20 Selected Nationwide for Prestigious Conservation Scholars Program

Bright Prospect student Ramiro Pinedo, Pitzer Class of 2018, is one of 20 undergraduates nationwide to be chosen for the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), a two-year program dedicated to educating future leaders in environmental conservation. As part of the program, Ramiro will delve into environmental conservation through field research, leadership and professional training. Ramiro, a lover of the great outdoors who goes camping whenever possible, was drawn to the program’s focus on exposing early-career undergrads to the world of environmental conservation.  He plans to major in environmental analysis and minor in Portuguese at Pitzer College. The UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program was launched in 2013 by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The program aims to prepare a diverse group of students to lead the future of environmental conservation. It is administered by five universities: UCSC, Northern Arizona University, University of Florida, University of Michigan and University of Washington. Congratulations, Ramiro!
