CCS Student Opportunities

Student Opportunities


There are many ways that current and prospective students can engage with us at the Center for Community and Citizen Science. In general research centers on campus can provide a valuable opportunity for students to:

  • Gain experience, build your resumé, and references for future jobs;
  • Advance your academic work;
  • Expand your network of colleagues on campus and beyond; and
  • Better understand the inner workings of the University, and the many roles that people play in this sprawling institution.
  • Find a community of fun people.

The graduate and undergraduate students who work with us are a crucial part of our community, bringing valuable energy, perspectives, and experience to our inherently interdisciplinary group. If you’re interested in getting involved, click here to read more and get plugged in.


CCS in Conservation Fellowship

Training, mentorship, and funding for graduate students in conservation

Effective conservation brings together research, partnerships across disciplines and sectors, and a commitment to iterative learning that supports long-term stewardship. In conservation science, community and citizen science (CCS) approaches can be especially powerful and yield valuable data while also advancing other parts of a conservation program, such as education and community engagement. However, formal training in CCS is not yet widely available for graduate students pursuing degrees in conservation science.
