Registration Scholarships

We are no longer accepting applications as we have distributed all available funds. 

These full or discounted registration waivers and travel scholarships are intended to help those who need financial assistance to attend the Fire Congress and to increase the diversity of congress attendees and AFE members. In particular, we have sponsorship funds that are dedicated to increasing attendance by tribal members students, managers/practitioners, and international attendees. 

Thanks to our sponsors and congress supporters who are making this possible!

What does the scholarship provide?
Free or discounted registration and/or scholarships to assist with travel costs. The amount given per applicant will depend on the number of applicants, available scholarship funds, and how well the applicant meets the scholarship criteria. 

Who Can Apply?
We encourage anyone who needs financial assistance to attend the Fire Congress to apply. Applicants will be ranked and selected based on the criteria below. You do not have to meet all criteria to apply. 

  1. Financial Need: Will the applicant be unable to attend without this assistance?
  2. Diversity: Will the applicant increase the diversity of people and perspectives represented at the Fire Congress? This can be answered in many ways and is an open-ended question so applicants can self-describe. 
  3. Congress Participation: Is the applicant a presenter or organizing a session at the event? Is the applicant a first-time Fire Congress attendee?
