IAWF STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS

In an effort to continue to promote the scholarly pursuits and graduate level training within the global wildland fire community, in 2015 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/Arts (MSc/MA) 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 18 February 2015 and 27 March 2015.  Award winners will be announced by the end of May 2015.

Scholarships will be awarded to the top MSc and top PhD applicants based the student’s submitted essay.
