About the Gregory Award
The Gregory Award commemorates the legacy of G. Robinson (Bob) Gregory by bringing outstanding international students and early-career professionals to the annual SAF National Convention to engage with SAF members, students, and professionals from across the United States. Through this experience, awardees expand their professional networks, explore career development opportunities, and become international ambassadors for SAF.
