Since our founding in 2003, Annie’s List has trained thousands to run for office and run campaigns. We know that training is a big investment, which is why we’ve partnered with our family of Champions, candidates, donors, and alumni to grow the Grace Ann Garcia Scholarship to pay it forward and build the bench of progressive, pro-choice women ready to run for office.

To join others in honoring the memory of Grace Ann Garcia, support the scholarship. Contributions can be made at the Annie's List Training & Engagement Fund.

Contributing to the scholarship equips more people to learn and leverage the:

  • Candidate 101 and 201 Programs
  • Campaign School for Campaign Staff
  • Campaign Grad School
  • Campaign Fellowship Program

Grace Ann Garcia served as Annie’s List Executive Director from 2013 until her tragic passing on June 2, 2014.

With the support of a generous donor, Annie’s List has established a scholarship to ensure Grace’s legacy lives on through the training of future candidates and staffers for years to come.

Grace Ann Garcia Scholarships are available to those who apply and qualify for financial support of participation in any Annie’s List learning opportunity. To inquire about the Scholarship or any of Annie’s List learning opportunities, please email
