Travel, Research, and Educational Experience (TREE) Grant Application
The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) has been awarded the privilege of administering the distribution of the Joint Fire Science 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 in the U.S. are 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, 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.
Applications for grants to attend the Fire Continuum Conference are due by March 23. Advisor recommendations are also due by March 23 for the application to be considered. Decision notifications will be sent to applicants by April 20. For more information on the Fire Continuum Conference, visit http://firecontinuumconference.org.
