The Andrew F. Giesen III Poultry Science Undergraduate Internship Award was inaugurated in 2014 with donations from Dr. Giesen’s family, friends and Novus International Inc., in memory of his contributions to the industry as a Past President and Fellow of the Poultry Science Association, Past President of the Federation of Animal Science Societies (FASS), and a career-long contributor to the poultry industry as an employee of Novus International Inc.
This $1,500 award is given to financially support students who have secured an internship for the year the award is given. These funds are to assist students with travel, room and board, and other related expenses accumulated with their internship. Consideration will be given based on financial needs associated with the internship (e.g., airfare and travel, short-term housing, and other expenses not covered by the employer), as well as what impact the student expects the internship to have on his/her future career.
The award is paid to the selected recipient(s). This is not a reimbursement award. Recipients will be required to complete a W-9.
