GFA Student Visionary Award

GFA will be awarding the Student Visionary Award to one deserving student.  The chosen student will receive $500 from GFA Federal Credit Union for their efforts and exemplary actions.


Often times students are recognized for their scholastic achievements and at GFA we believe students should also be praised when they demonstrate strong qualities of character and good citizenship.

The GFA Student Visionary Award serves the purpose of instilling character and helping perpetuate the ideals of helping people among youth. The award is given to a student who is devoted to setting forth a vision, much like our founding fathers, that exemplifies the entrepreneurial approach to bettering the lives of others.

If you feel you know a student who possesses the traits deserving of the Student Visionary Award please fill out the form below. Student bio and grade transcripts are optional.

Due to the uncertainty of these times, the deadline for the GFA Student Visionary Award has been extended, with no specific deadline as of now. Please continue to apply, we will reconfigure and update with the most current information here.
