Conservation Research Institute


Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS) are pleased to announce that they are now accepting applications for their conference which will take place in Cambridge and online in March 2022.

The conference aims to bring together conservation scientists in the early stages of their research careers.  SCCS also uses its location in Cambridge to build firm links between the new generation of conservation scientists and the many national and international conservation agencies based nearby.

The conference has an internship scheme, which is available for delegates from developing and eastern European countries. This scheme enables selected delegates to spend up to one month before the conference with a UK-based NGO or university department carrying out a conservation science-related project of mutual interest.

Internship applicants are required to submit their application by 7 September 2021 so that the host has time to respond to the application for an internship. Interns are required to attend the conference and should apply for that too.

The closing date for all applications to the conference is 15 September 2021 at 10:00pm (BST).
