Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Gregory Award // 15 March 2021
The Society of American Foresters is now accepting applications for the 2021 Gregory Award. The Gregory Award seeks to mark the achievements of Bob and Ann Gregory and further their interest in international relations. The award provides economic assistance to outstanding students and early-career professionals from outside of the US and Canada to attend the SAF National Convention and have meaningful engagement with SAF members and other convention attendees. The award offers one individual complimentary registration and $2,000 to attend the SAF National Convention, which is scheduled for November 3-7 in Sacramento, California. If the event becomes virtual, or if international travel isn’t possible, the award will once again shift to offer complimentary registration to a larger number of individuals. Please help us spread the word about this exciting opportunity.
