January 8, 2015 - The Poultry Science Association Foundation Board of Trustees has approved guidelines for their first-ever funded undergraduate internship program, the Andrew F. Giesen III Poultry Science Undergraduate Internship.
This internship 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 PSA Foundation by Giesen's family, friends and Novus International, in memory of his 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 will be accepted electronically through the PSA website (www.poultryscience.org) until March 1st for the first set of internships to be awarded in the summer of 2015. Applicants should review the internship award guidelines for directions on how to apply.
