It's no longer an industry characterized by ink under the fingernails, but one needing talent and expertise in areas as diverse as data management, IT, workflow engineering, equipment operation, sales and business management.”

GCSFNE conducts fundraising efforts throughout the year to enable the expansion of the number of scholarships awarded each year. Currently, scholarships are awarded up to a maximum of $2500/year for those students attending a 4 year accredited program.
