USPOULTRY Awards $30,600 to NC State for Student Recruitment


The USPOULTRY Foundation awarded $30,642 to North Carolina State University Prestage Department of Poultry Science for recruiting.  The grant was made possible from an endowing Foundation gift from the Stanley & Dorothy Frank Family Foundation.


North Carolina State University is one of the six institutions in the United States with a dedicated department of poultry science.  Dr. Lynn Worley-Davis, undergraduate teaching coordinator at NCSU Department of Poultry Science stated, “The USPOULTRY Foundation grant allows the Prestage Department of Poultry Science to fund events that engage and recruit future students and help retain our current students.”  She added, “Once students choose us, we want to keep them. Since students are the best advocates for our department and industry.”


The USPOULTRY Foundation has awarded recruiting grants totaling $328,300 for the 2018-2019 school year to 34 colleges and universities across the United States with either a poultry science department or a poultry studies program.
