RHS Fellowship for MSc Plant Diversity students
The RHS, the UK's leading gardening charity, launched the RHS Fellowship in 2004. Each year since then the RHS has provided a scholarship for a student to undertake the University of Reading 's MSc in Plant Diversity. The selected student receives £6,000 towards tuition fees and living expenses, and a further £2,500 is allocated for research materials. RHS Fellows build a close working relationship with the RHS, and carry out a research project as part of their MSc programme which lies within the RHS research remit. The projects, which are co-supervised by a member of RHS staff, draw on RHS strengths in cultivated plant taxonomy and are designed to allow the student to develop their skills and knowledge in this field.
Students interested in applying for the RHS Fellowship should contact Dr Julie Hawkins in the first instance. In order to be considered for the Fellowship applicants must complete the Fellowship Application Form as well as following the usual application procedure at '' to obtain a place on the MSc.
