Chalupa to receive Young Leader scholarship

The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) Board of Directors selected thirteen college students to receive the MACA Young Leader Scholarship to be used for their college expenses.


This is the seventh year for the program, which is designed to expose future agriculturalists to the crop protection industry and future career opportunities. Recipients will benefit from the financial compensation, exposure and networking with MACA members. MACA members benefit by developing a talent pool of future industry leaders and through the heightened awareness of MACA within the participating universities.


The candidates’ educational focus is agriculture and all are enrolled at one of the Land-Grant Universities in the MACA region.  They have secured a summer internship (2019) within agriculture, preferably within the crop protection industry. Additionally, the selected recipient will attend the MACA Annual Meeting September 3-5, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana to speak about their internship experience and participate in the meeting with MACA members.
