USPOULTRY Foundation Accepting Applications for Industry Education Recruitment Funding

The USPOULTRY Foundation is now accepting applications from colleges and universities for Industry Education Recruitment Funding. The funding supports student recruitment at colleges and universities that cultivate careers in the poultry and egg industry.

Any institution of higher education in the United States that can show conceivable ways of connecting students with the poultry and egg industry is eligible to apply for a recruitment grant of up to $7,000. If a school offers a poultry science minor, that school may be eligible for up to $3,000 in additional funding, pending USPOULTRY Foundation Board approval.

A committee of university and industry professionals will review funding requests and make recommendations to the USPOULTRY Foundation board of directors. Institutions may apply for a grant by completing the funding application and submitting it via email to Barbara Jenkins at bjenkins@uspoultry.org or via regular mail by August 15. The application can be accessed by clicking here.
