The Anne S. Chatham Fellowship provides a grant of $4,500 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. Fellowship recipient will be selected by a panel of botanists appointed by the Missouri Botanical Garden and is subject to approved by the Garden Club of America Scholarship Committee.
