John Z. Duling Grant Program
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. John Z. Duling Grants may be used to support exploratory work in the early stages of untested, but potentially transformative, research ideas and approaches. Examples may include application of new approaches to research questions, or application of new expertise involving novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.
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.
For 2023, the Duling program will focus on Propagation, Plant Selection, Development of New Varieties, and Planting/Establishment.
Deadline for Letter of Inquiry: Sep. 15, 2023
