The Southeast Produce Council SEPC Member Scholarship program has grown year-over-year since its founding and this year is no exception. SEPC awarded a then-record breaking 52 scholarships worth $104,000 in 2017. This year, that number climbed again, to 56 scholarships worth $112,000.
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 attended at least one SEPC event in the past year. Additionally, applicants must be enrolled with a minimum of 12 credit hours, and special consideration is given to those pursuing a career in the produce industry.
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.
Congratulations to the 56 winners of the 2018 SEPC Member Scholarship:
