Adelaide Gray Memorial Scholarship
The Adelaide Gray Memorial Scholarship was set up in 1997 in memory of Iris and Maura’s mother Adelaide loved Irish Dance and always felt that there should be a scholarship for Irish Dancers just as there are special scholarships designated to the various sports. She knew how important a good education was and that it should be cherished. Adelaide always felt that with a solid education your opportunities are limitless. Open to Gray School dancers who are high school seniors graduating in the Spring of 2013 and planning to attend a four-year undergraduate college or university or to active Gray School dancers who are presently enrolled in a four year college or university as a full time student .
