Fellowships and Financial Aid

The Garden offers Graduate Fellowships for study in systematic and economic botany.


The annual stipend is approximately $24,000, paid in 26 biweekly installments. A paid vacation of four weeks is offered each year. Tuition required by the universities and medical insurance are paid in full by the Garden.


Appointments begin July 1 or September 1 annually by special arrangement. Fellowships may be renewed annually, contingent on satisfactory scholastic progress. Fellows are expected to complete their degree in five years.


Applications for financial aid must be received by January 15 annually.


Made by March 15 annually.

Each fellow is expected to devote half-time to formal graduate study, leading to a Ph.D. degree in biology from one of the affiliated universities, and half-time to assisting different research projects and related activities, such as curatorial work, within the institution.

Financial support is also available directly from the participating universities in the form of fellowships, assistantships, and loans. Prospective students should contact the university of interest about direct financial assistance.
