2014 IAWF Scholarship Program Call for Applicants
In an effort to continue to promote the scholarly pursuits and graduate level training within the global wildland fire community, in 2014 the International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF) will again be awarding two graduate-level scholarships, each valued at $3,000USD to IAWF members who are Master of Science (MSc) or Doctoral (PhD) students studying wildland fire or wildland fire related topics. We encourage applications from students studying any aspect of wildland fire be it from the perspective of physical, ecological or social science to less traditional subject areas as well: we are looking through this scholarship to recognize and support any type of research relevant to the global wildland fire community. The application period will be open between 29 January 2014 and 15 March 2014. Award winners will be announced by the end of May 2014. Click here for more information.
We were able to increase the amount of the scholarships this year due to a grant from The Outdoor Foundation, in which we were nominated for by Wolverine. For more information visit outdoorfoundation.org or outdornation.org. For more information about Wolverine visit wolverine.com.
WUI Fact Sheet
In the July/August issue of Wildland Magazine, Dan Bailey, IAWF President, referenced a WUI Fact Sheet with statistical information about the U.S. wildland fire problem — specifically, the wildland/urban interface (WUI).
