Applications invited for John Z. Duling Grant Program

Organization: Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund)

Apply By: 15 Sep 2019

Grant Amount: 25000 USD

About the Organization

Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund) is shaping the future of trees and the arboriculture profession. Established in 2002 via a merger of the International Society of Arboriculture Research Trust and the National Arborist Foundation, TREE Fund has awarded over $4.3 million in grants toward its mission of identifying and funding programs that support the discovery and dissemination of new knowledge in arboriculture and urban forestry.

About the Grant

The John Z. Duling Grant Program was established and funded by a bequest from the estate of John Z. Duling of Indiana, a strong advocate of research who in 1972 proposed the establishment of the ISA Research Trust. The goal of this program is to provide start-up or seed funding to support innovative research and technology transfer projects that have the potential of benefiting the everyday work of arborists.

Grant Amount and duration

Projects are expected to be completed within one to three years with a maximum grant award of $25,000. No project may receive more than one award from this program. Due to the similarity of the Jack Kimmel International Grant and John Z. Duling Grant, applicants may submit to only one of these programs per annual project funding cycle.

Themes

In 2019, TREE Fund’s John Z. Duling Grant program will be focused specifically on plant health care, to include such sample areas of inquiry as (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Pest/pathogen biology and management;
  • Resistance breeding;
  • Decay assessment;
  • Tree injection;

Eligibility

Letters of inquiry for Duling Grants that do not focus on topics related to plant health care will be rejected from further consideration. TREE Fund welcomes research proposals and applications from a wide range of academic and technical disciplines, of both a qualitative and a quantitative nature. TREE Fund does not fund the following types of projects, and will not accept applications for such work:

  • Grants to individuals;
  • Projects that are primarily municipal tree surveys or assessments;
  • Tree planting programs;
  • Studies of individual tree species for the primary purpose of agricultural or timber/forest planting yield;
  • Commercial tree- or soil-related product testing primarily for the benefit of the company that manufactures the product.

How to Apply

The first step to apply for this grant is to send an email containing a brief Letter of Inquiry (LOI) of no more than 100 words describing your project title and concept to treefund@treefund.org between August 1, 2019 and September 15, 2019.
