The Lake States Fire Science Consortium requests proposals to fund research internships that address relevant fire science and management issues associated with northern fire-dependent ecosystems of the Lake States region Proposals must be developed by joint manager-scientist teams (i.e. both must be listed as co-PIs and equally contribute to proposal development) and outline how the research internship will address a critical need that will help improve management of fire-dependent ecosystems locally. Preference will be given to partnerships that have not yet received funding from the program.
The LSFSC anticipates awarding several $4,000 research internship awards. It is expected that 100% of the funds should go to support the undergraduate internship experience . All proposals must be submitted by 5:00 PM Eastern / 4:00 PM Central on Monday, December 7, 2020 by email to Jack McGowan-Stinski. There will be no exceptions to this closing date and time.Continue Reading
