Travel, Research, and Educational Experience (TREE) Grant Application Form
The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) has been awarded the privilege of administering the distribution of the Joint Fire Sciences Program (JFSP) TREE grant, which is designed to help graduate students travel to present at conferences, symposia, and workshops related to wildland fire science and management. All registered graduate students in good academic standing in a field related to wildland fire science, ecology, or management will be eligible to apply for grants. Depending on costs and the number of applicants, grants may fund all or a portion of estimated travel expenses including transportation, lodging, registration fees, and presentation preparation costs, where applicable. Funds cannot be used for food and incidentals, student stipends, direct research costs, or faculty research/administration costs. Grants will be paid as reimbursements for submitted receipts. Grants are limited and competitively awarded, and can only be awarded to current graduate students who are presenting the results of their fire-related research. This grant is for students without other Joint Fire Science Program support.
The deadline for TREE Grant applications for the upcoming 7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress is October 20, 2017. Grant decision notifications will be sent out no later than October 27, 2017.
The deadline for other conferences/symposia/workshops is 60 days before the start of the event you would like to attend. Grant decision notifications are sent out 30 days after the application deadline.
NOTE: Once your application is submitted, you cannot access it again. As long as you leave the tab open on your computer, you can still work on your application, but once you submit it, you must contact AFE to make any changes or updates. After your application has been submitted, a copy of it will be emailed to you for your records.
