The United Fresh Produce Association announced that the application period for the 2016 Frieda Rapoport Caplan Family Business Scholarship is now open.

The Frieda Rapoport Caplan Family Business Scholarship Program was founded in 2001 by sisters Karen Caplan and Jackie Caplan Wiggins, in honor of their mother, Frieda Rapoport Caplan. This program provides the opportunity for representatives from family-owned businesses to attend the United Fresh Washington Conference.

This year, scholarship recipients will receive complimentary airfare, hotel, and registration to participate in the conference September 12-14 in Washington DC. Applications must be received by August 5, 2016.

Each year, the scholarship committee reviews applicants for the program using several criteria, including each candidate’s interest in advocacy work and commitment to the produce industry.

The Washington Conference brings together hundreds of produce leaders from all sectors of the industry for education on critical industry issues and meetings with members of Congress, their staff, and top regulatory officials. Scholarship recipients will have an opportunity to network with produce industry executives from across the nation, as well as gain an understanding of the political process and how to advocate for their priority issues.

For more information on the Frieda Rapoport Caplan Family Business Scholarship Program, phone Miriam Wolk at 202-303-3410. To learn more about The Washington Conference, go to www.unitedfresh.org/ or phone Angela Tiwari at 202-303-3416.
