Cobb-Vantress has historically been an active partner in the Poultry Science Association and strong supporter of research and education for young people involved in poultry science. Establishing this fellowship to address critical issues facing the poultry industry today reinforces the leadership position which Cobb-Vantress has taken in prior years and will ensure future leadership for the entire industry.
The Fellowship will commence in the Summer semester of 2021 and be awarded to an outstanding student in poultry sciences pursuing a PhD degree. The Fellowship will provide $37,500 in funding over a three-year period subject to satisfactory progress. Priority emphasis for the proposed research project will focus on innovative, applied, and basic aspects of poultry science including such areas as genetics, genomics, genetic/environmental responses, immunology, and molecular genetics. The selected graduate student will be directed in their study of poultry genetics by a faculty mentor and advisory committee to include a Cobb-Vantress scientist.
Applications (Project Details, see below) should be addressed to Dr. Paul Siegel, Chair of the Cobb-Vantress Endowed Graduate Poultry Research Fellowship.
Application Deadline: NEXT MONDAY,
February 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM CST.
Selection of the PhD Award recipient is anticipated by March 15, 2021.
