US - The Poultry Science Foundation has approved guidelines for the first funded undergraduate internship programme named in honour of Dr Andrew F. Giesen, III.

The Poultry Science Association Foundation Board of Trustees has approved guidelines for its first funded undergraduate internship programme designed to match outstanding life sciences undergraduates interested in exploring career options in poultry science with companies and organisations that produce or are otherwise affiliated with the poultry industry.
