The University of North Georgia's (UNG) poultry science program was awarded a $7,000 grant, according to a news release from the university. The grant, which was donated by the US Poultry & Egg Foundation, will be used to help students who are pursuing associate degrees in agriculture and poultry science. It will also be used to provide educational material, as well as to recruit new students to the program. 

"This grant helps prepare students for jobs and the industry our university serves," said Dr. Linda Purvis, assistant professor of biology. "It means we can continue to help spread the information about our poultry program and recruit students into our program."

Georgia is home to a multibillion-dollar poultry industry, by far the largest agricultural sector in the state.
