The Grant of Arms (GoA) is an SCA society level award with a rank between that of a Patent of Arms and an Award of Arms. Some awards automatically confer a Grant of Arms upon their award. These are known as grant level awards. A Grant of Arms may be awarded on its own or as part of a grant level award; which form is more common varies a lot from Kingdom to Kingdom.

The arms of the recipient may be augmented with a crest (a helm displayed above the arms). In some Kingdoms, the style of the crest is specified in Kingdom law. For example, in Caid, the device of someone with a GoA may be augmented with a a non-metallic black or steel-grey helmet. This award also conveys the title of Lordship or Ladyship, or The Honorable Lord/Lady, these titles are used more frequently in some Kingdoms than in others.
