The USPOULTRY Foundation has awarded a student recruitment grant totaling $26,362 to North Carolina State University’s Prestage Department of Poultry Science. The grant was made possible by an endowing Foundation gift from the Stanley Frank Family Foundation.
“Because of the generous USPOULTRY Foundation gift made possible by the Stanley Frank Family, we are able to continuously recruit students and prepare them for career development in the poultry industry. We are very appreciative,” said Becca Wysocky, research specialist and recruitment committee member of the Prestage Department of Poultry Science.
In 2016, the USPOULTRY Foundation board approved student recruiting grants totaling $291,000 to 32 colleges and universities across the United States with a poultry science department or industry-related degree program. The Harold E. Ford Foundation provides annual recruiting funds to colleges and universities to attract students to their poultry programs. The grants are made possible by gifts to the foundation from companies, individuals and families, in addition to funds earned over the years at the International Poultry Expo, part of the International Production & Processing Expo.
