2013 Scholarship Recipients Announced
This is the seventh year the IAWF will be awarding two scholarships valued at $2,500 to promote the scholarly pursuits and graduate-level training within the global wildland fire community. The 2013 scholarship program received several applicants from students around the world in a range of science disciplines including social, environmental and physical sciences.
This year’s scholarship recipients are Hector L. Martinez-Torres from the Univeridad del Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) and Elizabeth A. Schneider from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
“We see these scholarships as a cornerstone of our Association, helping join together our members and our rising experts in the field to better understand and address current wildfire issues and to learn from each other,” says IAWF President Dan W. Bailey. “I congratulate them and look forward to their future contributions to our broader knowledge of wildland fire.”
