18-1-01 Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) More Information Actions
The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) invites current master and doctoral students enrolled at colleges or universities within the US in the field of wildland fire and related physical, biological, and social sciences to apply for a Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) award. The purpose of a GRIN award is to enhance student exposure to the management and policy relevance of their research to achieve beneficial outcomes of funded work. Specific objectives related to management are to enhance student exposure to and interaction with fire and fuels managers, develop appreciation and understanding of fire and fuels managers information and research needs, and augment already planned and funded master or doctoral research to develop information and/or products useful to managers. The JFSP also is interested in understanding the science needs of decision-makers, which provides an opportunity for students to enhance their understanding of how science can be used to inform fire-related policy. As a result, these awards are intended to enable graduate students to conduct research that will supplement and enhance the quality, scope, or applicability of their thesis or dissertation to develop information and products useful to managers and decision-makers. Proposals must demonstrate relevance to fire, fuels, or resource management and include means to directly communicate with managers, when applicable, regarding project outcomes. Proposals must be directly related to the mission and goals of JFSP to be considered. Applicants are encouraged to search the JFSP website (www.firescience.gov) to learn more about the scope of JFSP activities. In addition, proposals must directly address management- or policy-related questions related to one or more of the following topic areas: * Fuels management and fire behavior * Emissions and air quality * Fire effects and post-fire recovery * Relative impacts of prescribed fire versus wildfire * Human dimensions of fire Proposals on topics not listed above will not be reviewed.

05-1-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to obtain, document, and evaluate critical, time-sensitive information or data during or immediately following future wildland fire incidents. Proposals that take advantage of sites where pre-fire data is available to evaluate the effects of previous land management activities (such as mechanical treatment and/or prescribed burning that removed biomass) on fire behavior, fire severity, and/or fire effects will receive the highest priority for funding. Proposals are also sought that evaluate the effects of post-fire treatments for slope stabilization or rehabilitation. Proposals should address wildland/urban interface areas and issues as appropriate. Response teams must meet the requirements described above. Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-1-2 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to collect post-fire data on wildfires that burned in 2004, which analyze and describe relationships between pre-fire condition and fire behavior, at local to landscape scales, specific to the effects of previous land management activities (such as mechanical treatment and/or prescribed burning that removed biomass). Proposals are also sought that evaluate the impacts of post-fire treatments for slope stabilization or rehabilitation. Proposals should take advantage of sites where pre-fire data is available on fuel treatments, fuel characteristics, and/or stand structure; such sites are strongly preferred. Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-2-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to directly address locally important knowledge or data gaps associated with planning and implementation of wildland fire, fuels treatment, or post-fire treatment actions (including post-fire salvage logging) that are specifically identified by an agency administrator (see definition section F). Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-3-1 More Information Actions
Air Quality - Proposals are sought that support the needs of wildland fire managers and policy makers in determining the contribution of biomass burning to PM2.5 , ozone, and visibility on a regional basis. Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-3-2 More Information Actions
Evaluating the Effectiveness of State and Local Laws, Policies and Incentives on Wildland Fire Hazard Abatement Efforts. Proposals are requested to evaluate the effectiveness of state and local laws, policies and incentives that influence individual and community actions to mitigate wildland fire hazard. Proposals should also evaluate how these state and local laws, policies and incentives affect the ability to implement fuels treatment in the wildland urban interface (WUI). Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-3-3 More Information Actions
Evaluating the Success of Fire Science Application Efforts. Proposals are sought to describe, compare, contrast, assess and quantify the effectiveness of various processes used to disseminate information, facilitate science-management collaboration, enhance the utility of scientific information, and increase the likelihood of management application of scientific information. Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-4-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought that will extend technology transfer activities beyond the conclusion of successful current, or recently completed, JFSP funded projects or other applicable wildland fire research. Closed on Dec 15, 2004

05-4-2 More Information Actions
Produce readily understandable and useable information synthesis or transfer products on key topics of critical interest to the fire and fuels management community. Closed on Dec 15, 2004
