Since 1995, GFC has offered a scholarship to assist Associates’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs.
Created in honor of our founder, the Gordon J. Flesch Scholarship Program awards up to 20 scholarships annually to assist Associates’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Since 1995, the program has distributed more than $1.5 million to dependent children of company employees.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
