Meet the Scholars

This program is currently on hold.

What is the Grey Towers Scholar-in-Residence program?

Professional historians and graduate students with a research project on the Pinchot family, the USDA Forest Service, or conservation history, are invited to apply for the opportunity to reside at Gifford Pinchot’s ancestral home, immersing themselves in the site where Pinchot gained the inspiration to write, legislate, and tirelessly work on behalf of forest conservation.

Grey Towers offers recipients an idyllic setting for research and writing with few distractions which will inspire new directions and ideas on conservation and the Forest Service while speeding the completion of their work.
