National Fellowships

Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship for Conservation Horticulture

Official site:
Final Deadline: November 30, 2015

The Garden Club of America (GCA) and the Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) administer the grant, which enables a graduate student in biology, horticulture, or a related field to conduct research on a rare or endangered U.S. plant. Preference is given to students focusing on the endangered flora of the Carolinas or the southeastern United States. Fellowships may vary from $1,000 to $4,000, and will serve as compensation for work done by a graduate student, often at a botanical garden jointly serving CPC and that student's curricular studies.
