Fellowship to a USA, Canada, or International individual emerging scientist for research studies related to plants. Priority funding is intended to support an individual whose work involves organismal plant biology. The fellowship program includes a two-to-eight-week stay at Oak Spring estate in Upperville, Virginia. This fellowship is granted to an exceptional plant scientist whose research shows remarkable promise to contribute to a deeper understanding of organismal plant biology, including plant ecology.

At Oak Spring, Fellows will be able to meet with staff, explore the landscape, and visit the rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art. The Fellow will have ample time and space to work independently on their own projects during their stay. The only requirement during their time at Oak Spring will be to give one 20-30-minute presentation with time for questions, to Oak Spring staff and any other fellows, residents, or program participants who might be on site.
