CHAMPAIGN, Ill., January 22, 2019 – The Poultry Science Association Foundation (PSA Foundation) is pleased to announce a $50,000 gift pledge over five years from Huvepharma Inc. This generous contribution to the future education of deserving students in poultry science will be highlighted during the 2019 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia. The Continuing Education Endowment will support poultry science students who are interested in attending graduate school for M.S., Ph.D. and DVM degrees.
“Huvepharma acknowledges the critical need for preparing the next generation of talented young scientists to serve as the leadership in the poultry industry. Our industry has excellent opportunities for these young people, and we want to do our part to help incentivize the most talented students to want to join us in helping to feed the world” stated Mark Sullivan, Director of Sales-Poultry Business Unit, Huvepharma, Inc.
The Huvepharma Continuing Education Endowment will support an undergraduate student entering his or her junior year or a beginning graduate student and is renewable for the following year subject to satisfactory academic progress. Preference will be given for students interested in the sciences necessary to continue at the graduate level in Poultry Science; these students are encouraged to apply for the Inaugural Huvepharma Education Award. The endowment was made possible through the PSA Foundation Charting Our Course – Securing Future Leadership for Poultry Campaign (Capital Campaign).
“At Huvepharma, we’re committed to working with the Poultry Science Association Foundation and our university partners to identify these young people early in their academic careers as a means to communicate the great opportunities in the poultry industry”, stated Mr. Sullivan. “The Continuing Education Endowment is an effective means to reinforce Huvepharma’s commitment to the education of these outstanding young people.”
Nationwide student recruitment for the Huvepharma Education Endowment Award is anticipated to begin in early spring of 2023, with the application process to be completed in the late spring. Huvepharma Inc. and the PSA Foundation will announce the 2023 recipient during the PSA’s Annual Meeting.
