DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY

The Plant Biological Sciences graduate program at the University of
Minnesota will award a USDA National Needs Fellowship for doctoral students
interested in Plant Biotechnology. The Fellowship award provides an annual
stipend of $17,000 for 3 years plus tuition waiver. An additional 2 years
of support will be available from the graduate program. Applicants must be
US citizens or US nationals and have an interest in training and a career
in some aspect of plant biotechnology. The deadline for this award is
open until filled. Applicants interested in starting their program
in January 2001 will be given special attention.
