What we can do for you

The SWFSC is constantly looking for ways to improve dissemination of fire science information. Through support from the Joint Fire Science Program, the consortium can fund 2-3 workshops/field trips per year at a rate of up to $1,300 per workshop or field trip plus up to eight travel grants of $480 each. In addition, we have funding available to create webinars, Wildfire Lesson Learned stories, and working papers.  Let us put your ideas to work!
