The Midwest Poultry Consortium (MPC) has accepted 31 students to the Center of Excellence Scholarship/Internship Program. Selected students have demonstrated an eagerness to learn more about poultry science and will participate in an intensive, research-based six-week curriculum. The curriculum will focus on problem-solving, laboratory training, industry field trips, and interactive lectures and discussions. The selected students will receive 18 transferable credits to their home universities, the opportunity to network with nationally recognized faculty, and a six to ten week-long internship with an MPC sponsored company.
The Department of Animal Science is proud to have five students participating in this exciting opportunity. Congratulations to Rachel Herschman, Rebecca Ingle, Kiana Smutzler, Lillie Decker and Madison Willkomm!
