Fellowship opportunities:

UC Davis Plant Sciences Graduate Student Research Assistantship (GSR) Awards

"GSR funds are provided to the Department of Plant Sciences by UC ANR from the McDonald and other Endowments. The funds are aimed at supporting graduate student researchers who do work that improves the state of California agriculture or environment.


Areas of research emphasis in the Department of Plant Sciences include but are not limited to: agroecology, plant breeding, plant genetics and genomics, plant-microbial interactions, plant physiology, ecosystem management, restoration ecology, plant biochemistry, post-harvest physiology, urban ecology, and weed science.


The awards are also aimed at supporting collaborative research between UC Davis and researchers UC-wide, such as UC ANR and UC Berkeley or Riverside."

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program

"The NSF GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines who are pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions. The five-year fellowship includes three years of financial support including an annual stipend of $34,000 and a cost of education allowance of $12,000 to the institution." 

I always advise prospective and current students to submit a proposal to the NSF GRFP. It is a great opportunity to prepare by thinking about designing projects and practicing writing.
