JOHN Z. DULING GRANT PROGRAM- Tree Fund: Programa de Fondos John Z. Duling


Please review the following information before proceeding to the online application.

Note:  Due to the similarity of the Jack Kimmel International Grant and John Z. Duling Grant, TREE Fund requests that applicants submit to only one of these programs per unique project and funding cycle.  Related but unique projects submitted across programs may be considered within a given funding cycle.  If identical proposals/projects are submitted to both funding programs within one funding cycle, neither will be considered for review.

The John Z. Duling Grant Program was established and funded by a bequest from the estate of John Z. Duling of Indiana, who was a strong advocate of research and proposed in 1972 the establishment of the ISA Research Trust. The goal of this program is to provide seed money or partial support for innovative research and technology transfer projects that have the potential of benefiting the everyday work of arborists. It is anticipated that Duling grantees will leverage additional dollars.

Projects are expected to be completed within one to three years. Grant award amounts are limited to a maximum of $10,000 and will vary depending upon the adjudged value of the project relative to the needs of the arboriculture community. No project may receive more than one award from this program. Please note that funds cannot be used to pay for overhead expenses or student tuition and fees.
