Sarah Tilley, a third-year student at North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, is the recipient of an American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP) Foundation Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.
The AAAP Foundation Scholarship Program is available to students interested in a career in poultry health or food science who are pursuing a DVM, Master’s or Doctoral degree at a college of veterinary medicine or a graduate school, or who are majoring in avian science, poultry science, food science, animal science, or biology at an accredited undergraduate university with the intent to pursue an advanced degree.
Scholarship recipients are selected from a national pool of applicants based on academic accomplishments, letters of recommendation, experience related to poultry health or food safety, and an essay competition.
Last year Tilley received the AAAP Outstanding Poster Award at the association annual meeting.
The American Association of Avian Pathologists was founded in 1957 to promote scientific knowledge and enhance the health, well-being, and productivity of poultry for a safe and abundant food supply. The AAAP Foundation was established in 1988 to administer awards and scholarships through the donations of AAAP members and friends.
