Applications for Student TREE Grants for the
7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress: Due October 20
If you are applying for a grant to fund your travel to the upcoming 7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress, you will need to complete your application by October 20, 2017. Notifications of award will be sent by October 27, so that you can begin planning your travel.
If you have not already submitted a proposal to give an oral or poster presentation at the Fire Congress, but would like to attend that event and receive a TREE grant to help with travel costs, please send an email to
and notify us that you are not currently scheduled for a presentation. You might still be eligible for a TREE grant and be able to give a presentation on your research.
Student Association for Fire Ecology (SAFE)
is planning a great set of events for the Fire Congress, including an evening student social at Disney Wilderness Preserve, the national SAFE lunch meeting, and a student-focused interactive fire circle discussion, and a student poster contest.
Several conference presentations will share student research findings, and we'll be holding a student poster contest.
The Education Committee of AFE is also hosting a special session and a fire circle with former awardees, as well as managers who worked with awardees, of the JFSP Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) grants, focused on how GRIN has affected wildland fire management. Come learn about these young leaders in applied fire ecology and science.
