    The Botany in Action Fellowship program at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, PA, fosters the development of the next generation of plant-based scientists who are committed, first, to excellent research, and second, to educational outreach. Open to PhD students enrolled at US graduate institutions and conducting plant-based scientific research, the program provides each fellow with: 1) $5,000 for use towards research-related expenses at sites in the US or abroad, 2) an all-expenses paid trip to Phipps, to engage in science outreach training and opportunities to translate and communicate their research to non-scientific, public audiences through written, visual and/or oral means, (contingent on the COVID19 situation) and 3) subsequent opportunities to connect their research with the public through programs, exhibits, and other outreach venues.
