Additional Information: An important aspect of the award is that it is intended to enable a student to pursue an avenue of research that might otherwise prove closed. Accordingly, the funds may be used to cover direct costs associated with travel, field studies, or laboratory research. However, fellowship funds may not be used to cover indirect costs or overhead and should not be used to pay for lab space or supplies normally provided by universities. The Missouri Botanical Garden has agreed to administer the new fellowship and selection of candidates for the award will be by a panel of botanists specializing in economic botany and ethnobotany.

Award Amount: $4,500 annually, non-renewable.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $4,500.
