Join the inclusive wildland fire science planning proposals webinar on November 30
November 14, 2022
Wildland fire is a prevalent phenomenon, posing both benefits and risks. To begin to address the complex issues posed by wildland fires, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) recently published a Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 22-122) titled Planning Proposals to Catalyze Innovative and Inclusive Wildland Fire Science through Diverse Collaborations, calling for planning proposals that engage diverse stakeholders and rights holders in wildland fire science.
NSF Program Officers will hold a webinar on November 30 to describe the opportunity and answer questions.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2022 budget of $8.8 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
