Grant V. Frey, Sr. Memorial Scholarship

The Grant V. Frey, Sr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in March 2021 with the mission of honoring Grant V. Frey, Sr. who died in December 2020 at the age of 60. We want to continue Grant’s “aloha” spirit!

Grant V. Frey, Sr. was born in Newport Beach, California and raised in Honolulu, Hawai`i. He graduated from Lewis & Clark in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Grant also earned a Master of Science degree from Indiana University in 1984 and Master of Military Studies degree from Marine Corps University in 2001.

He played goalkeeper on the Pioneer men’s soccer team during all four years at Lewis & Clark and received the “most valuable player award” in 1981 as a junior. During his sophomore year, he was a member of the 1980 men’s soccer team which was inducted into the Lewis & Clark Sports Hall of Fame in October 2011.

Grant retired from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2008 with twenty-two years of service as a Lieutenant Colonel (Military Police Officer). He went onto a civil service career as the Executive Director of the Marine Corps Police Academy at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California. He has two grown children – Lauren living in Fredericksburg, Virginia and Grant, Jr. who graduated from Lewis & Clark, BA ’11, and resides in Portland, Oregon.

In addition, he was a member of the Athletic Hall of Fame Nominating committee. In both capacities, Grant provided much needed organization and direction as well as smiles and fun. Both as an undergrad and as an LC Alumni Volunteer, Grant had the Pioneer Spirit and exemplified the liberal arts student - smart, passionate, fun - and used his skills to not only serve our country but serve LC and his family.
