The Fellowship in Medicinal Botany was established in 1997 by Anne S. Chatham (Mrs. Hugh), Jupiter Island (Florida) Garden Club, while she was Zone VIII Representative to the Scholarship Committee. 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.
Eligible candidates include students in any field of specialty who are currently enrolled in PhD programs at recognized universities and recent graduates who have received their degrees in the last five years. The fellowship is administered by the Missouri Botanical Garden. Fellowship recipients will be selected by a panel of botanists with expertise in economic botany or ethnobotany, subject to approval by the Garden Club of America Scholarship Committee.
The main purpose of this is to protect and preserve knowledge about the medicinal use of plants, thus preventing the disappearance of plants with therapeutic potential. Providing this research opportunity for botanists can, in turn, assist medical science in its ability to protect lives and develop medicines. Accordingly, the funds may be used to cover direct costs associated with travel, field studies, or laboratory research.
