US - Applications for the Poultry Science Education Fund of the US Poultry & Egg Harold E. Ford Foundation can now be made.


The fund supports student recruitment at colleges and universities with poultry science programmes that do not have full departments with poultry science degrees. Any institution of higher education in the United States that offers an identifiable poultry science programme is eligible for a recruitment grant of up to $7,000.

A committee of poultry science department professionals will evaluate funding requests and make recommendations to the board of directors of the Ford Foundation. Institutions may apply for a grant by completing the form and submitting nine copies to the U.S. Poultry & Egg Harold E. Ford Foundation by August 1. For the application form, click here.

Established in 1994, the Ford Foundation funds recruitment and retention efforts at colleges and universities that have full poultry science departments and offer degrees in poultry science. The Poultry Science Education Fund was added in 2004 to assist institutions with poultry studies, but without separate departments.
