The John Z. Duling Grant Program offers funding up to US$25 thousand during 1-3 years to support exploratory work in the early stages of untested but potentially transformative research in arboriculture. TREE Fund requires a match of least 10% cash or in-kind support from other sources.
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.
TREE Fund will accept applications only between August 1 and October 1, 2018. To apply, send an email containing a brief (no more than 100 words) description of your project title and concept to firstname.lastname@example.org. TREE Fund staff with confirm eligibility for consideration, and if your concept qualifies, will send you a numbered application form for your use.
Upon completion of this application form, you will save a Word version for your records, then create a PDF version of the completed document with title in the format “PI Surname, Grant Program, Application Number” (e.g. “Smith, #17-023”), and email it as an attachment to email@example.com with a PDF of PI and Co-PI (if applicable) CVs. Staff will confirm receipt of your application at that time.
In addition to contact and CV information for the PI, Co-PI(s), and any student assistants, applicants will need the following information to complete the form. Note well that word count limits are firm and absolute. Exceeding word counts may result in your application being rejected before review. Applicants should compose their text in Word or related systems that allow counts to be confirmed before they are placed in the application form.
