Commodore Matthew Perry Graduate Studies Program

The Graduate Studies Program provides training in the plant sciences for approximately 20 students who are working toward the Ph.D. or Master's degree. In partnership with six area universities—Columbia University, Cornell University, Fordham University, Lehman College of the City University of New York, New York University, and Yale University—the Program provides an atmosphere of intellectual and creative rigor that encourages inquiry, research, and study of evolving knowledge about plants. Classroom study, traditional fieldwork and museum study, and cutting-edge laboratory research train students to assume leadership positions at academic, research, and conservation organizations throughout the world.
