USPOULTRY Foundation Awards $4,620 Student Recruiting Grant to the University of Tennessee

The USPOULTRY Foundation recently awarded a $4,620 student recruiting grant to the University of Tennessee. The grant was made possible in part from an endowing Foundation gift from Centurion Poultry.

The University of Tennessee will use the grant funds to purchase recruitment materials, provide a poultry judging contest award banquet and fund the attendance of graduate students at the International Poultry Scientific Forum.

The USPOULTRY Foundation board recently approved student recruiting grants totaling $306,366 to 28 colleges and universities across the United States with a poultry science department or industry-related degree program. The USPOULTRY 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 from the International Poultry Expo, part of the International Production & Processing Expo.

U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is the All Feather Association progressively serving its poultry and egg members through research, education, communications and technical services. Founded in 1947, USPOULTRY is based in Tucker, Georgia.
