New Science Initiative — Social Science Funding Opportunity

Two areas of interest:

  • Fire-adapted communities

Graduate Research Innovation Award (GRIN) Funding Opportunity

In partnership with the Association for Fire Ecology, the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) invites current Masters and Doctorate graduate students enrolled in U.S. colleges or universities in the fields of wildland fire and related human dimensions and ecological sciences to apply for a Graduate Research Innovation Award. The purpose of the GRIN Award is to:

  • Enhance graduate student’s exposure to and interaction with fire and fuels managers
  • Develop understanding of fire and fuels managers information and research needs
  • Augment ongoing research to develop information and/or products useful to managers

Knowledge Exchange Consortia Pre-proposals Funding Opportunity

The JFSP is soliciting pre-proposals to support two new consortia of fire science providers and managers to enhance the exchange and adoption of fire science. Pre-proposals will support initial planning and assessment of management needs for two regions not currently part of this network:

  • Northeast and mid-Atlantic region
  • Washington, DC (focused on the policy-making community rather than field practitioners)

Please Note: A significant change to the proposal submission process

Because of past issues with submitted budgets, the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is making a significant change to the JFSP proposal submission process. We are sending this notice so you will be prepared for this change in the proposal submission process.

Starting with the 2014 Funding Opportunity Notices, principal investigators will not be able to submit proposals until the Budget contact and the Agreements contact electronically certify in the JFSP proposal submission database that they have reviewed the budget and the submitted information is correct. Principal Investigators should plan for this step. Proposals must be completed and submitted by 1700 MST November 22, 2013 to be considered. As always, there will be no exceptions to this deadline.

Specific instructions are in the JFSP Funding Opportunity Notices. Please do not contact the program office until you read these instructions.

Please keep in mind that proposals can be started at any time saved and submitted at a later time. Do not wait until the last day to complete this new certification process.
