The deadline for submitting a proposal is July 1, 2023.
Proposals should include your resume, the name of a contact person from the company, garden or institution where the candidate will work, the purpose for the funding request and budget. You can apply online here.

Recipients will be invited to share their experience at the annual IPPS-Eastern Region Conference in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Also, recipients are required to provide a one-page report on their experience for the IPPS-ER Newsletter and Proceedings, check in with an IPPS mentor during the internship and make a short video about the experience.
