Funding Opportunity: Joint Fire Science Program 2015

We fund scientific studies to address problems associated with managing wildland fuels, fires, and fire impacted ecosystems.
2015 RESEARCH FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES NOW OPEN

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
BECAUSE IT'S WHAT WE DO...
We fund scientific studies to address problems associated with managing wildland fuels, fires, and fire impacted ecosystems.

We present seven Primary Task Statements, and our
Annual Graduate Research Innovation Awards (GRIN).
Proposals are DUE by November 21, 2014, 5:00 p.m. MST

Topics respond to the three goals of the
National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy: 
Restore and maintain resilient landscapes 
Create fire-adapted communities 
Safe and effective wildfire response 

7 Primary Research Topics:
 
 - Fuels mapping for emissions inventories

 - Implications of changing fuels and fire regimes - selected regions

 - Smoke Hazard Warning System
 - Implications of changing fuels and fire regimes – selected regions
 - Fire ember production
 - Fire effects on soil heating
 - Fire weather and decision making: a social and modeling analysis
 - Re-measurement - long term fire effects on vegetation and fuels
Graduate Research Innovation Awards (GRIN)

In partnership with the Association for Fire Ecology, we invite current MS and PhD graduate students enrolled in US colleges or universities in the fields of wildland fire, related human dimensions and ecological sciences to apply for a GRIN award.
 
Proposals must be directly related to the mission and goals of JFSP to be considered. Applicants are encouraged to search our website to learn more about the scope of JFSP activities. Proposals must directly address one of the following topics:
 
  • Climate change and fire (e.g., fire behavior, fire effects, fire regime)
  • Post-fire recovery (e.g., effects of burn severity, treatment effectiveness)
  • Smoke or emissions assessments
  • Fire weather
  • Social issues and fire (e.g., community preparation, transfer and use of science, public perceptions, fire-adapted communities)
