ALEXANDER G. GRAY, JR. SCHOLARSHIP FUND
First presented in 2007, the Gray Scholarship is awarded annually to a law student who demonstrates a proven commitment to and involvement in the LGBTQ community, as well as leadership, maturity, and responsibility. The unrestricted $2,500 award helps defray the costs of the recipient’s legal education.
The Gray Scholarship Fund was created in memory and celebration of friend and colleague Alexander “Alec” G. Gray, Jr.
The Scholarship Fund honors Alec’s outstanding work as a lawyer and his dedication to the Mass LGBTQ Bar. Alec served on the bar association’s board from 2002 until 2005. Alec took seriously the task of mentoring LGBTQ law students and new lawyers. He developed lasting relationships with those individuals whom he mentored.
Alec will long be remembered for his dedication to public service, his advocacy on behalf of children, and his deep commitment to all that he undertook.
