The Missouri Botanical Garden announces our annual competition for the
Elizabeth E. Bascom Fellowships in botany for Latin American women and
the Alwyn H. Gentry Fellowships in botany for Latin American men.  The
purpose of the scholarships will be that of supporting the career of
botanists of Latin America through a financial aid that permits them to
carry out investigations in the Missouri Botanical Garden.  During their
stopover in Saint Louis, the fellows will have access to the herbarium,
to the library and to the database botany (TROPICOS) of the Missouri
Botanical Garden.  The financial support will include the roundtrip air
ticket to Saint Louis Missouri, lodging in the Garden apartment and a
small stipend for food and miscellaneous expenses in Saint Louis for a
period from one to three months.
The deadline for reception of applications is July 31, 2008 and the
announcement of the results of the competition will be September 30,
