2023 Oak Spring Garden Foundation’s Fellowship in Plant Science Research (Virginia)


The Oak Spring Garden Foundation is accepting applications for its Plant Science Research Fellowship.

Donor Name: Oak Spring Garden Foundation

State: Virginia

Type of Grant: Fellowship

Deadline: 05/31/2023

Size of the Grant: $10,000



The Plant Science Research Fellowship is awarded annually to one outstanding, early-career plant scientist, with preference given to scientists working in organismal plant biology.

Fellowship in Plant Science Research is their most prestigious award for early career practicing plant scientists.  The award includes a $10,000 individual grant and requires a 2 – 5 week stay at OSGF.  While at OSGF, the Fellow will be able to meet with staff, explore their 700-acre landscape and their efforts in sustainable land management, and visit their rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art. The Fellowship is well suited for individuals working on dissertations, or writing projects that require dedicated time in a supportive community with minimal distractions.

OSGF intends to award the Fellowship to an exceptional plant scientist whose research shows remarkable promise to contribute to a deeper understanding of organismal plant biology, including plant ecology.  The Fellow will be scheduled to visit when there are other Interdisciplinary Residents or Fellows on-site. This scheduling will allow the Fellow to join in communal meals, and optional activities and field trips with other artists, ecologists, researchers, or scholars working on projects related to OSGF’s mission.

Funding Information

The $10,000 individual grant associated with this award can be put towards travel to and from OSGF, materials and supplies purchased for their Residency, and other items that will support their work, before or after their stay at OSGF.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligible applicants must be early-career plant scientists who have completed their undergraduate degree within the past ten years.  The successful Fellow must be self-directed and able to work independently while on site. Applicants are expected to show dedication to their work in plant science, exceptional promise, good communication skills and excellence in what they have accomplished or plan to accomplish.
