Arizona Desert Botanical Garden Scholarship deadline is January 15

Scholarship Deadline is Tomorrow!  January 15th!! I hope you got those applications turned in on time for The Garden Club of America Award in Desert Studies awarded by the Arizona Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix.

For Graduate Students and Advanced Undergraduates

The Garden Club of America Award in Desert Studies was established to promote the study of horticulture, conservation and design in arid landscapes. The award, which can be in the form of either an internship or funding for a research related topic, is for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying horticulture, conservation, botany, environmental science and landscape design relating to the arid landscape.

Students must be enrolled at an accredited U.S. college or university. While the award is intended to have a wide scope pertaining to the arid environment, preference will be given to students wishing to gain practical field experience — specifically, planning and design for sustainability, rainwater harvesting and plant management, etc. — through structured internships at accredited botanical gardens or arboreta.

Students wishing to intern should contact a local botanical garden to frame a plan of work that will guide both the intern and the garden staff in implementation and monitoring. This plan should include the time period in which the student will be available for internship. The student should also check with the student’s advisor office to see if university credit will be given for the internship program, although academic credit is not required.

Doctoral research field projects will also be considered for the GCA Award in Desert Studies, but will not have funding preference.

At the completion of the internship or proposed project, the student would submit a written report of achievements to both the accredited botanical garden or arboreta and the GCA.
