The Resource Conservation Workshop (RCW) is a weeklong workshop and involves study and hands on participation in a wide range of conservation topics. Students are housed at North Carolina State University campus dormitories under the guidance of live-in counselors. In order to achieve success, students should come prepared to meet the primary objective of the workshop - learning about natural resources and their management in today's global environment. Awards and scholarships can be won and are presented to students under several awards programs.
