Application process for Vorhees scholarship opens November 28
The Southeast Produce Council has announced that students wishing to apply for the council's Vorhees Vision Scholarship may do so beginning Nov. 28. The application can only be submitted online through a link that will be provided by the council beginning on that date.
The Vorhees Vision Scholarship was created to reward the achievements of young individuals who demonstrate a true entrepreneurial spirit in their lives as they pursue their educational goals. This scholarship is named in honor of the late Terry L. Vorhees, founder and first executive director of the Southeast Produce Council. Because of his vision and efforts, the SEPC became and remains one of the best resources in the produce industry today.
One college-aged student (graduating high school senior or current college student) will receive a one-time scholarship of $7,500 to his or her enrolling college or university. The second-place recipient will receive $1,500, and the third-place recipient will receive $1,000.
The application deadline is 5 p.m. EST on Jan. 13, 2023.
The winners will be announced just prior to the council's Southern Exposure conference and trade show, scheduled for March 2-4 in Orlando, FL.
