USPOULTRY Foundation Awards $33,230 Student Recruiting Grant to Auburn University
The USPOULTRY Foundation recently awarded a $33,230 student recruiting grant to Auburn University. The grant was made possible in part from an endowing Foundation gift from Ingram Farms. Dr. William "Bill" Dozier, department head and director for the Charles C. Miller Jr. Poultry Research and Education Center, intends for the funds to help strengthen recruiting efforts, allowing the Poultry Science Department to interact with local high schools and community colleges to encourage students to consider poultry science and the various career opportunities available in the poultry industry.
