The Poultry Science Association Foundation (PSA Foundation) is pleased to announce the DSM Nutritional Products (DSM) gift pledge for the support of the Andrew F. Giesen III Undergraduate Internship Program (Giesen Undergraduate Internship Program) and the PSA Foundation. DSM’s very generous gift was announced during the recent annual meeting of the Poultry Science Association (PSA) held in Louisville, KY at the PSA Foundation Donor Reception.

The gift will be allocated 50 percent to the Giesen Undergraduate Internship Program and 50 percent to other programs of the PSA Foundation over a 10-year period. The pledge of DSM is a visionary gift for the education of talented undergraduate and graduate students interested in science, through the PSA Foundation Charting Our Course – Securing Future Leadership for Poultry Campaign (Capital Campaign). DSM’s gift was made possible by the involvement of DSM employees Terry Torrance, Marc DeBeer, Ph.D. and James W. Kessler, Ph.D.


The Giesen Undergraduate Internship Program is program designed to match outstanding undergraduates interested in exploring career options in poultry science with companies and organizations that produce or are otherwise affiliated with the poultry industry.
