GFDA offers a $1000.00 scholarship to be awarded to one student at Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service and one funeral service student at Ogeechee Technical College during our Summer Convention. All applications must be completed in full and sent to the GFDA office by our deadline for consideration. Further, the award of scholarships is at the discretion of the GFDA Executive Board; if minimum award criteria are met, the scholarship will be awarded. If minimum criteria are not met by any applicant, the Board reserves the right to not award scholarship(s) in any given year. Students must have served or be serving their apprenticeship at, or currently be employed by, a GFDA member funeral home in order to qualify.
Our scholarship application period has closed. Check back again February 2024.
