The Lee Campbell Poultry & Egg Educational Foundation is offering poultry industry internships for summer 2011.

The foundation will assist in sponsoring a qualified college student for up to 10 weeks of work experience at a major poultry company. In addition to learning the workings of the poultry export business, the intern will be given an overview of poultry production, processing and marketing. The foundation will grant the intern $1,500 at the beginning of the internship to help defray travel and housing expenses, with an additional $1,000 possible at the end of the summer 2011 program for submitting an acceptable paper that discusses an aspect of poultry exports.

To be eligible for consideration, interested students must complete and submit the foundation’s internship application form and are encouraged to also submit a brief (up to two pages) essay about their career objectives and the benefits the internship would have for them. Applications for the program must be received by close-of-business Monday, March 28, 2011.
