At the end of the summer, scholars participate in the Annual Capstone Symposium. This symposium is open to research mentors, the broader Yale School of the Environment community, and the general public. This opportunity allows scholars to practice professional skills. With the help of internship mentors and program staff, scholars learn how to craft and organize a brief “flash talk” on their internship experiences. This helps scholars come out of the program with the skills to navigate and present at academic conferences. The day is capped off with a keynote address given by a leader in the conservation field.
