Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is now accepting applications for the 2021 Botany in Action Fellowship program!







The Botany in Action (BIA) Fellowship program at Phipps Conservatory 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 program 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, (dependent on next year’s COVID19 situation) and 3) subsequent opportunities to connect their research with the public through programs, exhibits, and other outreach venues.
