Agency: The Gloeckner Foundation
Program: Applicant Driven Grants
Description: The Gloeckner Foundation awards grants for research and educational projects in floriculture and in the supporting and allied fields, such as agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, entomology, molecular biology, plant breeding, plant pathology, and plant physiology related to floriculture. The proposed research and educational projects must be of substantial importance, and the results made available to the interested public. Grants are awarded on the basis of project outlines, including objectives as well as methods, procedures, materials, equipment and personnel involved in the project. Requests for only equipment are considered when supported by a research project outline.
Award Amount: Varies (but 2011 grants ranged up to $10,000). Grants, although approved for funding for only one year at a time, will be evaluated and considered for renewal upon receipt of a progress report, plans for the coming year, and a written request for continuation of funding.
Eligibility: Higher Education Institutions
