The Society of American Foresters is excited to begin accepting applications for the 2017 Gregory Award. The Gregory Award seeks to mark the achievements of Bob and Ann Gregory and further their interest in international relations by providing economic assistance to outstanding students or professionals from outside of the US and Canada to attend the Society of American Foresters Convention and have meaningful engagement with foresters on the North American continent. Thanks to the continued generosity of the Gregory family and SAF members, this award has been expanded to bring two promising individuals to the SAF Convention each year.

This year’s convention will take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 15-19. The award includes complimentary registration and $2,000 (US dollars) that may be utilized for travel, lodging, and tickets to SAF convention events or technical field tours. SAF will work with successful applicants to allocate the funds in the most useful manner. The deadline to apply is May 8, 2017. The application is attached. For more information, visit
