The Anne S. Chatham Fellowship provides a grant of $4000 annually to promote the study of medicinal botany. The fellowship was established to protect and preserve knowledge about the medicinal use of plants, and thus prevent the disappearance of plants with therapeutic potential.
Eligible candidates include students currently enrolled in Ph.D. programs at recognized universities and recent graduates who have received their degrees in the last five years. The Fellowship recipient will be selected by a panel of botanists appointed by the Missouri Botanical Garden and is subject to approval by the Garden Club of America Scholarship Committee.
Information about the fellowship and how to apply can be found at the following website: http://www.wlbcenter.org/chatham.htm.
Proposals should be received no later than February 1, 2011. Mail applications to:
