Arizona Travel Grant Application

Requirements

Applicants must be owners, managers, or employees of traditional retail florists with a brick-and-mortar storefront in Arizona and MUST be requesting this grant for an event that takes place outside of Arizona. An exception to the out-of-state travel requirement is allowed if a national program (like SAF Convention or AIFD Symposium) is held within Arizona.

The grant will be made as a reimbursement after the event is attended. A recipient can receive the grant once every five years.

Examples of eligible opportunities include:
  • Floral design schools
  • SAF Convention
  • FTD Boot Camp
  • Floriology Institute
  • Teleflora Academy Events
  • SAF Profit Blast
  • State or Regional Floral Conventions
  • Cultivate
  • PFCI classes
  • AIFD Symposiums
  • and more!

The intent of this grant is to expand an applicant’s attendance beyond events they regularly attend and potentially share their expanded knowledge with their industry peers in Arizona. In reviewing applications, weight is given to the diversity of program selected. For example, if the last two or three awards have been to attend the same event then an application to attend an alternative event would be given additional weight.

Applications for this travel grant must be for an industry event in the coming year. (For example, apply in 2023 for travel in 2024.)

Applications are due by October 1st each year.
