The Poultry Science Association Foundation (PSAF) Board of Trustees recently approved guidelines for their first ever funded undergraduate internship program. The program is designed to match outstanding life sciences undergraduates interested in exploring career options in poultry science with companies and organizations that produce or are otherwise affiliated with the poultry industry. This internship award program is designed to attract bright young scientists to learn first-hand how science and technology is applied in solving the challenges of meat and egg production in the modern day poultry industry.  Funding for these internship awards was donated to the PSF by Drew’s family, friends and Novus International, in memory of his dedication and contributions to the industry as a Past President and Fellow of the Poultry Science Association (PSA), Past President of the Federation of Animal Science Societies and a career-long contributor to the poultry industry as an employee of Novus International, Inc.

Applications for the first set of internships are to be awarded in the summer of 2015 and will be accepted through the PSA website beginning January 2015 at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, through March 15.  Applicants should review the internship award guidelines for directions on how to apply. Companies and organizations interested in being matched with outstanding undergraduates in the life sciences may contact Dr. William Saylor (bsaylor@udel.edu) of the PSF, or Mr. Jon Cole, Director of Business Operations for the PSA (jon.cole@poultryscience.org).
