To foster British-American relations through the interchange of scholars in horticulture, landscape architecture, and related fields and to promote the exchange of information in the horticultural field.
Financial sponsorship in the UK has been provided by various institutions, including the McLaren Family and the American Scholar was once known as the Martin McLaren Scholar. Now the fellowship is sponsored and administered by the Royal Horticultural Society, and the scholar is known as the Royal Horticultural Society Interchange Fellow.
The Interchange Fellowships are a reciprocal exchange program, sponsored by The Garden Club of America in the US and the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK. More than 100 students have participated in the Interchange Fellowship Program, and many have gone on to hold prominent positions in public garden management, horticulture, education, and landscape architecture. The opportunities available to the fellows are unique in the horticultural field, and the network of past Fellows is a lasting legacy.
