Walter P. Gray III Scholarship 

The Walter P. Gray III Scholarship is administered by the Awards Committee and funds registration and travel for SCA Workshops and other related training and educational opportunities offered in California or online. All SCA members in good-standing who have limited or no access to institutional funding for continuing education may apply. Up to $500 may be awarded per individual, and $2,000 in funding  is made available each year.

Each candidate must submit a Gray Scholarship Application Form, including a proposed budget listing registration fees, travel expenses, and lodging, by the established deadline to be considered for the scholarship. The standard deadline is three weeks (21 days) prior to the educational event. (See below for AGM pre-conference workshop deadline.) Late or incomplete applications will not be considered for the scholarship. Neither Awards Committee nor Education Committee members are eligible to apply.

Successful applicants must cover expenses that they incur in excess of the award itself. Award recipients are not eligible to apply more than once within a calendar year. Unsuccessful applicants may apply for additional events within a calendar year, with no prejudice. 

Please send completed application form to, or to the Awards Committee Chair as listed on the Committee web page. For support in attending a 2022 AGM pre-conference workshop, applications must be received by April 8, 2022.

(Note: download form, complete offline, and submit via email. Problems? please contact the Awards Chair. Since funding availability is dependent on the remaining balance in an annual budget, enquiries regarding current availability are encouraged.)

Complete documentation on this scholarship is available from the SCA Handbook, Section 3-2-6.
