Introduction

The UFS Academy Recognition Program is created for UFSA Faculty and Students. These are awarded on an annual basis for the calendar year starting in January and ending in December.

Goal of the UFSA Staff Recognition Program

The United Federation Starfleet Academy is one of the cornerstones of the UFS organization. In order to continue to provide the excellent service that all UFS members can enjoy, the Academy Command Staff counts on those members who spend their free time making sure the academy functions as intended.

To recognize our dedicated and active staff, we have created a series of awards
