Description

The Daniel E. Stuntz Memorial Foundation makes grants through the Stuntz Mycology Fund (SMF) to provide financial support for mycological research and education in the Pacific Northwest. Although a wide range of mycological subjects can be considered, priority will be given to projects involving mushroom-forming fungi ("macrofungi," "macromycetes"), as they were the focus of Dr. Stuntz's research. Applicants do not necessarily have to reside in the Pacific Northwest as long as the research involves or pertains to Pacific Northwest fungi or the educational activity takes place in the Pacific Northwest and benefits the Pacific Northwest mycological community.

For purposes of the SMF grant program, the Pacific Northwest is considered to comprise Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana, southern British Columbia, and southeast and south-coastal Alaska. SMF favorably views projects that have obtained (or will obtain) matching (or greater) funding from other sources.

Grant Types and Eligibility
There are four categories of grant - Mini, Small, Individual, and Institutional:
  • Mini: These grants typically are awarded to K - 12 teachers or other educators in the Pacific Northwest for purposes such as purchasing supplies for class or individual student (such as school science fair) projects that relate to fungi. The maximum amount of a single award is $250. They are intended for quick-turnaround, with disbursal of funds made within 30 days of receipt of a complete application whenever possible.
  • Small: These grants typically are awarded to mushroom clubs/societies and other similar organizations as matching funds for purposes such as purchasing mycological books and visual media, purchasing audio-visual equipment, and conducting educational events such as forays and lectures by guest speakers. The awards will generally be under $1000. They are intended for quick-turnaround, with disbursal of funds made within 30 days of receipt of a complete application whenever possible.
  • Individual: These grants are awarded directly to individuals who normally are not working under the auspices of a college/university, herbarium/fungarium, museum, or other not-for-profit organization.
  • Institutional: These grants are awarded to students, researchers, or teachers who are affiliated with, or are working under the auspices of, a college/university, herbarium/fungarium, museum, or other not-for-profit organization. All funds are to be used for the proposed research or educational activities; salary and institutional overhead are not allowable costs except under extraordinary conditions.

Deadlines
Applications for Mini Grants and Small Grants, and for Individual and Institutional Grants of $1000 or less, will be accepted at any time. Applications for Individual Grants and Institutional Grants of more than $1000 are due by March 1 and October 1 each year in order to be considered at the spring and fall Board meetings, respectively.

If an application is received after all available funds for a given year have been awarded, the applicant will be given the option of withdrawing the application or having it considered during the following year.
