The Midwest Poultry Consortium has awarded 2018 Center of Excellence (COE) scholarships to five students from The Ohio State University. Four of the recipients are Animal Sciences students.
Emily Starlin (Animal Sciences) and Amanda Morgan (Agribusiness and Applied Economics) will be participating in Summer Session II classes, studying avian health, poultry nutrition, and poultry enterprise management. Emilee Copple (Animal Sciences), Claudia Tellman (Animal Sciences), and Paige Doklovic (Animal Sciences) will be participating in Summer Session I classes, studying avian physiology, breeder flock and hatchery management, and poultry products production. Emily and Emilee will be earning their Poultry Science emphasis after completing both summer sessions. Their scholarships, combined, are valued at nearly $44,000!
COE scholarships allow students to each take 9 credits of poultry focused course work at the University of Wisconsin per session with credits transferring back to the Ohio State University. After the conclusion of classes students move on to paid summer internships with industry sponsors. Any student completing both sessions will earn a Poultry Science emphasis.
