If accepted into the Program, Student Diversity Ambassadors will receive a stipend to help fund the costs needed to attend the 2017 SAF National Convention. The stipend will cover the cost of registration, tickets to events, and shared hotel accommodations. Following the convention, each Student Diversity Ambassador will participate in an e-mentoring program throughout 2018. 

Students will be matched with a mentor who is a natural resource professional. Mentors will be identified based upon the student’s interests and needs.
