North Carolina State University recently received a $27,205 student recruiting grant from the USPOULTRY Foundation. The grant was made possible by an endowing gift from the Stanley Frank Family Foundation.

“We would like to thank the USPOULTRY Foundation for the support of our poultry science students. These funds enable us to convey the value of a degree in poultry science to future potential students and subsequently recruit those students into our programs here in the Prestage Department of Poultry Science,” said Dr. Mike Williams, professor and head of the Prestage Department of Poultry Science, North Carolina State University.

The USPOULTRY Foundation board approved student recruiting grants totaling more than $230,600 to the six U.S. universities with poultry science departments and 20 other institutions with industry-related programs. The Foundation provides annual recruiting funds to colleges and universities to attract students to their poultry programs.
