2018 National Garden Fellowship at the U.S. Botanic Garden

This 10-week intensive Fellowship is located at the U.S Botanic Garden (USBG) in Washington, DC and is funded through the National Fund for the U.S. Botanic Garden (NFUSBG). This is an environmental education Fellowship that works closely with USBG Education team to facilitate the Hands on Plants Science (HOPS) summer program. During HOPS the National Garden intern learns how to prepare and run sixteen different hands on modules, as the National Garden becomes an outdoor classroom where urban students and teachers dissect flowers, learn how seeds travel, use microscopes, and analyze soil. The Fellow will also lead high school aged interns in facilitating hands on activities for school groups, camps, and visitors.

Applicants must be at minimum a rising college senior, preferably with a background in environmental education, plant-science, and/or horticulture. A $6,000 stipend is provided. This Fellowship is a unique opportunity to work with one of our Nation’s longest operating Botanical Gardens – an urban oasis located right in the heart of Washington, DC.

The deadline for applications is Friday, February 2, 2018.
