The Whitney R. Harris World Ecology Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, in collaboration with The Christensen Fund, invites applications from suitably qualified, highly motivated graduates for fully funded masters and Ph.D. fellowships in plant conservation.
The purpose of The Christensen Fund Fellowship Program in Plant Conservation is to educate botanists who will become decision-makers in their home countries. The two to five year fellowships (depending on degree program) are designed to attract and support individuals from tropical countries who will return to their country or region following graduation and make a significant difference in the development and application of plant conservation programs.
