David Scully received 2010 GAP Award funding to present a series of workshops on his epic story Pimp Or Priest: The Life Choices Offered to Walter Williams, written in the vein of Angels in America and Cider House Rules — except in this work the African-American characters aren’t playing supporting roles; they’re the main characters. The story follows the journey of the protagonist through numerous settings including a home for unwed mothers, feminist church, the street, the black middle and upper class, black academia, and, finally, the political arena.

David also received a 1996 Fellowship from Artist Trust.
