Sponsored by the Garden Club of America (GCA), this fellowship is awarded annually to an exceptional graduate student to assist with study and research at a leading American institution. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (also called permanent resident aliens).

This fellowship reflects and promotes the GCA’s interest in supporting garden history and design, and examining the future of gardens and their unique place in our environment. Project study should have wide scope, such as investigating new techniques of garden restoration; studying how small gardens created by community groups have impacted public gardens; exploring and documenting physical, emotional and spiritual healing properties of the garden; and instigating the development of gardens that use ecological and regenerative concepts, to name but a few possibilities.
