Gregory Award (Closed for 2015)

SAF’s World Forestry Committee is excited to announce the results of the 2015 Gregory Award. Thanks to the continued generosity of the Gregory family and SAF members, the award has been expanded to bring two promising young professionals to the SAF Convention in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year’s recipients are Dauda Tempitope Hauwa from Nigeria and Mohammad Rahmat Ullah from Bangladesh. We are excited to have them join us and share their unique knowledge and experiences. Be on the lookout for opportunities to meet and greet these incredible individuals.


The Gregory Award provides economic assistance to outstanding students and young professionals from outside of the US and Canada to attend the SAF annual convention to foster meaningful engagement with foresters on this continent. Applications must be received electronically (preferred) or in hard copy on or before 23:59 EDT (US) May 1, 2015.
