The American Society of Pharmacognosy (ASP) is one of the leading societies in the world devoted to the field of “natural products”, and encompasses a broad array of topics (chemistry, biology, microbiology, ecology, drug discovery) that are used as tools to study living systems in the natural world. We are working to address inequities that face marginalized communities in the pursuit of graduate school and professional careers in the natural product sciences.
Towards this goal the ASP offers a 2.5 month summer research fellowship to support students in lab-based research under the supervision of an ASP faculty mentor. ASP summer research fellows will receive a total stipend of $5,000 for the summer period, and will participate not only in lab research, but also in a series of weekly training and professional development workshops led by a team of ASP faculty leaders. We expect to support up to six summer research fellows each year
