Recipients of Gesneriad Society Elvin McDonald Research Grants and Nellie D. Sleeth Scholarships

The Gesneriad Society established the Elvin McDonald Research grants in 1986 and the Nellie D. Sleeth Scholarships in 2005 in order to assist researchers and students in their work with gesneriads.

Research grants and scholarships are awarded based on the submission of proposals from gesneriad researchers and students from around the world. Guidelines for submitting an application for an Elvin McDonald Research Grant can be found here; guidelines for submitting an application for a Nellie D. Sleeth Scholarship can be found here.
