Travel, Research, and Educational Experience (TREE) Grant 

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. 

Grants will be paid as reimbursements for submitted receipts. The maximum amount any student can receive is $1,500.  Grants are limited and 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. 

Application Deadline

The application deadline is 60 days before the start of the event you would like to attend. Grant decision notifications are sent out 30 days after the application deadline.
