Attention students and faculty advisors: Fire Protection Research Foundation student projects are now available

The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) has an ongoing Student Project Initiative, with a goal to provide students an opportunity to work on projects that address timely issues of the fire protection and safety community.

This is an announcement about FPRF’s available student projects for 2022. If there is a student (or a group of students) at an institution who is interested and a faculty member willing to supervise and be the principal investigator of the project, then we would proceed. Student projects are not subject to the FPRF’s normal competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process, rather they are considered based on receiving a request for specific available project and faculty advisor’s qualification to guide the requested project. Thus, we are asking for a project qualification statement from the faculty advisor along with submitting the project request. Please review the Request for Qualification document for more details.

We currently have funding for three projects, which we will preferably allocate to three different academic institutions. The list of available projects with project description can be accessed at the FPRF’s Student Project Initiative webpage.

To request a project, the faculty advisors should send an email to no later than 5 PM US Eastern Time on December 16, 2022 with the following information: (a) Project name from the available list requested; (b) Faculty advisor/s name; (c) Student name(s) (if already identified); (d) Statement to demonstrate qualification of faculty advisor to guide the requested project as an attachment in the email.
