Student Travel (TREE) Grants

Travel, Research, and Educational Experience (TREE) Grants

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 in the United States travel to present at conferences, symposia, and workshops related to wildland fire science and management. Registered graduate students in good academic standing in a field related to wildland fire science, ecology, or management are eligible to apply. 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. Funds cannot be used for food and incidentals, student stipends, direct research costs, or faculty research/administration costs. International travel is not supported by this grant. Grants usually range from $250 to $750, and will be paid as reimbursements for submitted receipts.

Grants are limited and competitively awarded, and can only be awarded to current graduate students in the U.S. who are presenting the results of their fire-related research at the event.  This grant is for students without other Joint Fire Science Program support.
