UW-Madison Student Earns MACA Young Leader Scholarship
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/22/2019
The Mid America CropLife Association board of directors selected 13 college students from across the country to receive the MACA Young Leader Scholarship to be used for their college expenses.
To be eligible, the candidates' educational focus must be agriculture and they need to be enrolled at one of the Land-Grant Universities in the MACA region. The students must also have secured a summer internship within agriculture.
Samuel Jesse, who attends the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was among the winners. He is majoring in Agronomy and has lined up an internship at Peak Forage Solutions.
This is the seventh year for the program, which is designed to expose future agriculturalists to the crop protection industry and future career opportunities.
