About the Scholarship

Since its inception, the Kay Ellis Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded over $30,000 to students pursuing careers in the travel and tourism industry. The fund was started with a generous grant from Discover Gloucester in honor of Kay's instrumental role in creating Gloucester's first Destination Marketing Organization. We continue to raise funds by hosting various events throughout the year, with our premier event being a sail and party featuring local musicians, a sunset sail, and lots of fun!
