Fellowships at CCSD

     

 

CCSD takes great pride in its extremely successful training/practice fellowships at the Missouri Botanical Garden, a program that has grown significantly in scope over the years.

 

The first fellowships created, three per year, were the Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowships for Latin American Women in Science.  Later, CCSD instituted the Alwyn H. Gentry Fellowships and, in 2010, was able to expand the program with the new Shirley A. Graham Fellowships. In 2012, CCSD inaugurated the Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowship in Conservation Biology.

 

The fellowships, which are well established and prestigious, provide opportunities for individuals who have completed their undergraduate degree and have achieved a certain level of professional development to carry out meaningful work in a first-class plant science and conservation institution. The fellows also have opportunities to interact with the scientific staff at the Garden/CCSD, as well as with graduate students and other visitors, and to establish contact with faculty at local universities to explore possibilities for pursuing graduate studies. 

Fellowships for professional development at the Garden:

Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowships for Latin American Women in Science
Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowship in Conservation Biology
Alwyn H. Gentry Fellowships
Shirley A. Graham Fellowships
