Russ Melton Scholarship

Russ MeltonRuss Melton was a long-time friend of the IAAI. For years, he provided innovative expertise, training, and energy to the organization and the fire investigation community as a whole Those who knew Russ could not help but share his enthusiasm and rally behind his support for training and education. In addition, his decades of fire and explosion litigation experience across the United States helped shape the landscape within which we now operate. He leaves behind a powerful legacy of combining science and law in the continued search for the truth. In light of his accomplishments and his legacy, we are honored to present the Russ Melton Memorial Scholarship for the IAAI's annual training session: Complex Fire Investigation for the Insurance Industry, a class that Russ helped develop and grow.
