Bascom Fellowship Program

In 1999 the Garden created the Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowship for Latin American women in the plant sciences. This program provides travel grants for periods of one to six months at the Garden. In August 2001 the third round of Bascom fellowships were awarded. This year’s recipients of the award were: Carmen Bonifaz de Elao ("Flora de los Bosques de Garúa, Ecuador"); Judit Caballero ("Composición florística y estructura de la vegetación de dos parcelas permanentes en la selva Tucumano-Boliviana, Chuquisaca, Bolivia"); Gloria Calatayud ("Taxonomía y diversidad de la familia Orchidaceae en tres localidades de la región nororiental del Marañón, Perú"); and Ileana Velázquez ("Contribución a la conservación del bosque seco del Refugio de Vida Silvestre Chacocente, Nicaragua").

The Bascom Fellowship Committee was very pleased to receive many excellent proposals again this year. There will be another call for applications in the Spring of 2002, and we encourage all interested potential applicants to check the Fellowship's website then for further information.
