The USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program, held in conjunction with the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), attracted nearly 600 students from 38 universities throughout the United States, while the International Student Career Program brought in 18 students from nine universities. The students interviewed for jobs and internships with 119 human resource representatives from 33 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today's industry.

The Program involves students from national and international universities.
The USPOULTRY Foundation’s mission is to support the recruitment and training of the brightest students, seek and fund scientific research, foster student scientists and promote careers in the poultry and egg industry.
