Charles Bixler Heiser Jr.

Heiser Graduate Fellowship

In his honor, Heiser’s colleagues and former students established the Charles B. Heiser Graduate Fellowship in Plant Evolution in 2002. The first fellowships were awarded in 2009, and a total of three awards have been granted to Christopher Muir, Jennifer Richardson, and Wittaya Kaonongbua. Those wishing to remember Professor Heiser with a gift to the Heiser Fellowship can make an online contribution here or contact Kathy Wyss at
