Overview:

In the late 1990s, to help offset this trend of declining or consolidated botany programs at colleges and universities the GCA's Scholarship Committee added a proposal for a summer scholarship in field botany to its list of possible new offerings. Beginning in 2000, Mrs. Henry Streeter, an ardent horticulturist and member of the North Shore Garden Club of Massachusetts, generously offered to fund this opportunity. 

Purpose: To support student’s field studies and offer an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience beyond the regular course of study.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

  • Open to undergraduate and master’s degree students.
  • All candidates must be enrolled in an accredited US college or university.
