BLM Joint Fire Science Program Student Travel Assistance

Funding Agency:
Department of the Interior

The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is a partnership of federal wildland management and research agencies with a need to address problems associated with managing wildland fuels, fires, and fire-impacted ecosystems. The partnering agencies include the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, the Office of Wildland Fire, and five bureaus in the U.S. Department of the Interior - Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Geological Survey. 

A key component of JFSPs operating model is science delivery and support for early career fire science professionals.  To address these elements of science delivery, in 2011 JFSP established a mechanism to support graduate student travel to professional fire science conferences, symposia and workshops. 

From 2011 through 2016, JFSP supported graduate student travel through a partner organization who requested proposals through a competitive process. The program was highly effective, providing opportunities for graduate students and supporting the JFSP science delivery mission. 

Objectives: To partner with an organization to provide travel support for graduate students conducting research in the wildland fire arena to participate and present their results at professional workshops, conferences and symposia related to wildland fire science.
