The objectives of the Eastern Region Foundation are to provide research grants and offer academic scholarships to college and university faculty, students and personnel as well as to industry propagators and researchers. The Foundation has made a commitment to develop future horticultural leaders as well as support scientific research that will pioneer new directions for the industry.
We're closing in on our goal of $250,000, and once we reach that goal, we'll be ready to start inviting research proposals and funding projects that will support all the varied aspects of our industry. Imagine it; with this fund in place, we'll be in a position to identify industry needs, fund targeted research and share the results of that research. Could there possibly be a better way to 'Seek and Share' our way to a stronger and healthier industry?
