Southeast Produce Council Announces 2020 Member Scholarship Recipients
MILLEN, GA - Education, for many, can be key to leading a life of fulfillment. Aiming to cultivate the fresh produce leaders of the future, the Southeast Produce Council provides scholarships to qualifying children and grandchildren of its members. The association recently announced this year’s SEPC Member Scholarship recipients, awarding 74 scholarships ($148,000) for the year of 2020.
Scholarships are awarded to applicants who meet the application criteria of having a parent or grandparent who is a corporate member in good standing with the SEPC and has personally attended at least one SEPC event within the last 12 months. Additionally, applicants must be enrolled as a full-time student with a minimum of 12 semester hours. According to a press release, applicants are then able to submit the necessary paperwork, including an essay with this year’s topic “How do you define success?” to be reviewed by members of the SEPC Scholarship Committee.
SEPC Member Scholarship recipients receive one $2,000 scholarship annually. Past recipients are eligible; however, they must have maintained a 3.0 GPA, and first preference is given to new applicants.
