Oak Spring Garden Foundation in the United States invites botanists around the world to participate in the Plant Science Research Fellowship, with preference given to scientists working in organismal plant biology. This fellowship will be granted to an exceptional plant scientist whose research shows remarkable promise to contribute to a deeper understanding of organismal plant biology, including plant ecology. The Fellow will have ample time and space to work independently on their own projects during their stay.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Eligible applicants must be an early-career scientist who has completed their undergraduate degree within the past ten years. 
  • The successful Fellow must be self-directed and able to work independently while on site.
  • Applicants are expected to show dedication to their work in plant science, good communication skills, and excellence in what they have accomplished or plan to accomplish.

Conditions & Rules:

The only requirement during their time at Oak Spring will be to give one 45-minute presentation with time for questions, to Oak Spring staff and any other fellows or residents who might be on site.

Benefits:

  • The award includes a $10,000 individual grant and requires a two-to-four-week stay at Oak Spring. 
  • The individual selected for this award will spend 2 - 4 weeks at Oak Spring where they will be able to meet with staff, explore our 700-acre landscape, and visit our rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art. 
  • The selected Fellow should make travel arrangements to Dulles International Airport, where Oak Spring will arrange transportation for them to our estate in Upperville, VA. 
  • The Fellow will reside in a nicely appointed, self-catering accommodation during their time at Oak Spring. The fellow will have a private bedroom and bathroom and share a living room and kitchen.

Selection:

A jury of established plant scientists and science administrators will review the applicants and select the 2021 Oak Spring Garden Foundation’s Fellow in Plant Science Research.
