The fund supports student recruitment at colleges and universities with poultry science programs that do not have full departments with poultry science degrees. Any institution of higher education in the U.S. that offers an identifiable poultry science program is eligible for a recruitment grant of up to $7,000.
A committee of poultry science department professionals will review funding requests and make recommendations to the board of directors of the Foundation. Institutions can apply for a grant by completing the form and submitting nine copies to the USPOULTRY Foundation by Aug. 1. The form is available at http://www.poultryfoundation.org/files/psfund2011.pdf.
