Awards and Nomination Process

Nominations accepted through October 1 for our Lifetime Achievement Awards and Student Excellence Awards!

Our Lifetime Achievement Awards are presented during our banquet to individuals who have made a significant contribution to fire ecology and management in the United States and who have inspired and mentored a generation of fire ecologists. Their contributions may be in research, management, teaching, service, outreach, or a combination of these areas. The Biswell Award honors those whose work was primarily in the western U.S., the Stoddard Award goes to individuals from the eastern U.S., and the Wright Award goes to individuals who focused on grassland and shrubland ecosystems.

The SAFE Student Excellence Awards go to a Graduate and undergraduate student who demonstrate great service and potential as a professional in the field of fire ecology.

Nomination Process:  See AFE’s nomination process webpage for information on criteria for awards nominations and how to nominate someone.  You can also view our distinguished lifetime achievement winners and our previous student excellence winners.

Nominations are due Oct. 1, 2017.

The Mike da Luz Memorial Student Travel Scholarship will also be awarded.  You may contribute to this scholarship fund through donating to the student travel fund when you register for the conference, or by donating directly at the above link.  You can see last year’s scholarship winner here.
