2023 Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship in Conservation Horticulture
The Center for plant Conservation (CPC) is pleased to announce that Applications are now open for the 2022 Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship! Each year, The Garden Club of America (GCA) and CPC award the Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship in Conservation Horticulture to graduate students in biology, horticulture, or a related field. The purpose of the award is “to promote conservation of rare and endangered flora in the United States, with preference given to students whose projects focus on the endangered flora of the Carolinas and southeastern United States.” The fellowship was established to honor Catherine H. Beattie, who served as a director and board member of the GCA and as president from 1981 to 1983. The first fellowship was given by the Fullerton Foundation in 1983. The Fellowship provides one annual research grant of up to $4,500 as compensation for work at a botanical garden, jointly serving the program of CPC and the student’s curricular studies.
Applications are due by January 31! Learn more and apply.
