Horticulture Plant Science Excellence Graduate Fellowship

Application Deadline: April 15, 2020


The Horticulture Plant Science Excellence Graduate Fellowship is a one-year assistantship available to outstanding, incoming MS or PhD students in the Department of Horticulture for the study of fundamental biological processes of horticultural relevance using molecular or other advanced research tools. The goal of the Fellowship is to maintain the Horticulture Department's competitiveness in the global plant science arena.

The funds are to be used for the recruitment of highly qualified new students, and covers stipend, tuition and health benefits for one year. It is expected that the major professor will secure funding for the remainder of the student's program. Students in the initial year of study who have already enrolled may also be considered.

Nominations should be made by faculty in an email to the Horticulture Graduate Programs Assistant, Sherry Mulvaney.

The nominee should have a complete or nearly complete application to MSU-Horticulture in GAMS; no additional application materials are required. The Graduate Programs Committee will evaluate nominees on a continuing basis starting immediately and continuing until April 15, when an awardee will be selected.
