The Plant Biological Sciences graduate program at the University of 
Minnesota will award USDA National Needs Fellowships for doctoral students 
interested in Plant Biotechnology.  The Fellowship awards provide 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. Completed applications must be 
received by January 15, 1996.
