A University of Wisconsin-Madison student is among this year's winners of the Mid America CropLife Association scholarship program.
Clare Gietzel of Monticello, who is majoring in Agronomy with a minor in Global Health, will receive $2,000 to help with her college tuition expenses. She was one of 11 students from across the nation to be selected for the honor.
Gietzel will be working as a sales intern for Dow AgroSciences and Mycogen Seeds this summer and will travel around the state of Wisconsin.
This is the fifth year for the scholarship program, which is designed to expose future agriculturalists to the crop protection industry and future career opportunities.
All candidates must be studying in an agricultural area and be enrolled at one of the Land-Grant Universities in the MACA region.
