Botany in Action Fellowship - Phipps Conservatory, USA

The Botany in Action (BIA) Fellowship programme at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens fosters the development of the next generation of plant-based scientists who are committed, first, to excellent research, and second, to educational outreach.

Open to Ph.D. students enrolled at U.S. graduate institutions and conducting plant-based scientific research, the programme provides each fellow with:

  1. $5,000 for use towards research-related expenses at sites in the US or abroad*
  2. An all-expenses paid trip to Phipps, to engage in science outreach training and opportunities to translate and communicate their research to non-scientific, public audiences through written, visual and/or oral means.
  3. Subsequent opportunities to connect their research with the public through programmes, exhibits, and other outreach venues.

In addition, this year represents the 25th anniversary of the programme, and Science Engagement Week activities will include commemorating this milestone.
