If You Are Prompted The Program Key Is - GFIA
The Georgia Food Industry Education Foundation is pleased to offer over one hundred scholarships to deserving students each academic year. Funding for these awards is provided by the generous support of GFIA member companies and the fundraising efforts of the Foundation.
Once a student has completed the online application, they will be considered for ALL available awards for which they meet the criteria. You only have to complete ONE application to be considered for ALL available awards.
Successful fundraising throughout the year provides funding for our Foundation scholarships. These awards would not be possible without the support of those who attend the “Swinging for Scholarships” Spring Golf Tournament, purchase items in our Live and Silent Auctions, or make cash donations to our general fund.

Additional funding for the Foundation Awards is provided by an annual grant from Publix Super Markets Charities.
