JOHN Z. DULING GRANT PROGRAM - Criteria

Funds for NGOs
Last date 1st Oct 2017

Activities: Forest & Environment

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION

Proposals will be evaluated by TREE Fund’s Research Committee using the following criteria:

Potential Impact of the Topic: Does the project address a problem/issue within TREE Fund’s mission? Does the project pose a novel research question, propose a novel approach to an existing research question or represent a new area of research? Does the project address topics that benefit the everyday work of arborists and urban foresters? Will this project have application to a broad sector of the arboriculture and urban forestry communities? Will measurable outcomes occur as a result of this project?
Rigorous Approaches to the Process and Problem: Are the methods and proposed analysis appropriate and scientifically sound? Is the project creative, unique or novel in its approach to the problem? If this is a technology transfer project, is the transfer vehicle/method appropriate for the target audience?
Feasibility of the Proposed Scope of Work: Has the investigator demonstrated appropriate qualifications and resources to accomplish the project? Can the project be completed within the given time frame?
Budget: Is there a clear explanation of how grant funds will be used in the context of the total project budget? Are additional sources of funding for the project being pursued? Is the potential cost/benefit ratio for this project appropriate?
Applications will be specifically rated and screened per the following rubric:

Applicant’s C.V. demonstrates acceptable qualifications. (0 to 5 points)
Proposed project directly meets one or more of TREE Fund’s research priorities, identified above. (0 to 10 points)
Research has practical application. (0 to 10 points)
Methods (including means for data analysis) are clear. (0 to 15 points)
Objectives are achievable within proposed time frame and budget (0 to 5 points)
Requested funds are matched with at least 10% cash or in-kind support from other sources (0 or 5 points; all or nothing).
TREE Fund does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability or national or ethnic origin. Current trustees of TREE Fund or any member of the family of any such trustee are ineligible to receive grants from TREE Fund.

AWARD PROCESS AND FUNDS DISTRIBUTION

Recommendations on grant awards will be presented by the Research Committee to the TREE Fund Board of Trustees for approval in early December 2017, and grant recipient(s) will be notified in writing within two weeks of Trustee approval. A Grant Conditions and Agreement form will be provided with notification, and it must be completed within two weeks of notification, and returned to TREE Fund with all required supporting documentation.

Upon TREE Fund’s receipt of the signed Grant Conditions and Agreement form and additional required documents, the full amount of the award less $1,600 will be sent to the recipient. This $1,600 retention will be held until final and successful completion of all required documentation, including a fair and complete financial statement reflecting the original budget submitted and the actual expenditures. This final report is due to TREE Fund within 15 days of the project completion date identified in the application.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the sample Grant Conditions and Agreement form (which can be viewed here) with their employers’ financial or grant management offices, as appropriate, to ensure that the Agreement forms can be signed expeditiously upon receipt. Potential difficulties with Agreement terms that are identified during the application process may be considered and negotiated more favorably than those presented after the grant award process. Grant recipients will also be required to submit a brief summary of their projects in lay terms, as well as a photo for use in TREE Fund and industry publications, prior to initial payment being disbursed.

The reports shall supply sufficient information as described in the Grant Conditions and Agreement form to verify that the grant is being used for the purposes intended and to allow TREE Fund to fulfill its public reporting responsibilities. 

REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

It is TREE Fund’s explicit desire that research findings eventually be freely and widely available to any and all parties who may benefit from the author’s work. At the same time, TREE Fund recognizes the importance of academic and professional journal publications and will work with grant recipients to ensure that findings are disseminated in a manner that is cognizant of all parties’ schedules and needs. Any anticipated proprietary elements of proposed research must be identified clearly in the initial application. Should applications fail to make such declarations, TREE Fund reserves the right to negotiate royalties from patents, sales, copyrights, or other commercial results of funded research.

Recipient should inform TREE Fund when funded research findings are published or presented at conferences so that these accomplishments can be widely publicized. Recipients should also recognize the support provided by TREE Fund in their articles or presentations related to the funded project. Recipients are strongly encouraged to publish findings to relevant professional journals, i.e. Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, Urban Forestry & Urban Greening, Arboricultural Journal, Trees: Structure and Function, Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology, Plant Pathology, Hortscience, Horticultural Science, Sustainable Development, Landscape and Urban Planning, Journal of Urban Health, Environment and Urbanization, Urban Ecosystems, etc.
