Job Description 

This 6-week intensive Fellowship is located at the U.S Botanic Garden (USBG) in Washington, DC and is funded through the Friends of the U.S. Botanic Garden. This is an environmental education Fellowship that works closely with USBG Education Staff to facilitate the Hands on Plants Science (HOPS) summer program.

Duties & Responsibilities 

This is an environmental education Fellowship that works closely with USBG Education Staff to facilitate the Hands on Plants Science (HOPS) summer program. During HOPS the fellow learns how to prepare and run sixteen different hands on modules, as the National Garden becomes an outdoor classroom where urban students and teachers dissect flowers, learn how seeds travel, use microscopes, and analyze soil.

Education and Experience 

Applicants must be at minimum a rising college senior, preferably with a background in environmental education, plant-science, and/or horticulture. A $3,600 stipend is provided. This Fellowship is a unique opportunity to work with one of our Nation’s longest operating Botanical Gardens - an urban oasis located right in the heart of Washington, DC. The deadline for applications is Friday, February 28, 2020.
