The Gloeckner Foundation awards grants for research and educational projects in floriculture and related fields at universities, colleges and Federal research institutions in the United States. 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. An application form is available and can be downloaded from our website.
The research grant may include, assistantships for qualified graduate students seeking advanced degrees and accepted by the university or college.
The Gloeckner Foundation does not pay any indirect costs (overhead) on its research and education grants nor faculty or principal investigator's salary.
Grants are awarded on an annual basis, subject to review and renewal. The Foundation recognizes that research often cannot be accomplished in a single year. 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.
Grant requests (ten copies) must be completed on or before April 1st for consideration at the annual meeting of the Board of Directors held in early June. Grants are paid in August following approval at the June meeting.
