JFSP Funding Announcements

Joint Fire Science Program

The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) intends to request proposals through one or more formal Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) beginning approximately July 2020 and remaining open 60 days. The intent of this announcement is to provide an early alert to investigators interested in the topics listed below so that they can begin considering responsive ideas with potential partners and collaborators:

  • Relative impacts of prescribed and wildland fire
  • Types and distribution of (human-caused) ignitions and their relation to fire size and impacts
  • Science in support of fuel treatment performance metrics
  • Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) Award

AFSC Proposal Support

The Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) has a mission to build collaboration between scientists and fire management community in Alaska.

To help the Alaska fire science community prepare excellent proposals for 2020 JFSP funding, AFSC is organizing opportunities for investigators to explore their project ideas with AFSC staff and interested fire managers.
