Garden Club of America Award in Desert Studies

Description

The Garden Club of America Award in Desert Studies, 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. 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 through structured internships at accredited botanical gardens or arboreta, including but not limited to Desert Botanical Garden. Doctoral research field projects will also be considered for the GCA Award in Desert Studies, but will not have funding preference. Students wishing to intern should contact their chosen 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 an internship. Please visit the award's website or contact the Garden Club of America for more information.
