Industry Education / Recruitment
The Foundation’s support has been essential to the growth of our program. The student recruiting grants have enabled us to triple enrollment in poultry-related courses, which are training the next generation of industry leaders.

The Foundation added the Poultry Science Education Fund, now named Industry Education Recruitment Funding, under its umbrella in 2004. The Fund supports student recruitment at colleges and universities that encourage careers in the poultry industry. Any institution of higher education in the United States that offers an identifiable poultry program or can show plausible ways of connecting students with the poultry industry is eligible to apply for a recruitment grant of up to $7,000.
