TREE Student Travel Grants

The TREE Grant Program (Travel, Research and Educational Experience) by the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) and the Joint Fire Sciences Program (JFSP) is designed to help students travel to attend conferences, symposia, workshops, and laboratories dealing with wildland fire science and management. All registered graduate and undergraduate students in good academic standing in a field related to wildland fire science, ecology, or management will be eligible to apply for grants of $250-$1,500.  Depending on costs and number of applicants, grants may fund all or a portion of estimated travel expenses including transportation, lodging, registration fees, and incidental expenses, where applicable. Funds cannot be used for student stipends, direct research costs, or faculty research/administration costs. Grants are limited and competitively awarded, with special preference for students planning to make an oral or poster presentation at a fire conference.
