This travel grant was established by Bryan Bayles '92 in loving memory of his mother Kathryn Grey Bayles upon her death in June 2001. 

On multiple occasions Kathryn Grey Bayles welcomed into her home Davidson students on spring break trips to Washington, D.C. area museums. She was a tremendous supporter of Davidson through the Friends of the Arts and her family felt donations to the Art Department were a fitting tribute to her life.

A $500 travel grant is awarded each year to an art student planning travel to further explore the world of art.
