About the award

The Foundation’s Board of Governors makes the selection annually. Nominations are accepted from undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students and are judged on the scientific quality and relevance of their research to the fire protection engineering profession.
The recipient of this award receives a $1,000 honorarium from the SFPE Foundation.
