Council Member Richard Hunter has been working hard with the Roslin IT Department on our behalf and we are delighted to tell you that the UK Branch now has its own website at www.wpsa-uk.com. Thank you, Richard.
Why not have a look at it and you will see that it includes information about the Association and how to join, careers in poultry science and industry, a list of Officers, current activities, Conferences and Symposia, the latest Branch Newsletter and much more besides. It has links to the main WPSA website www.wpsa.com and it is also intended shortly to include links to relevant colleges, universities, affiliated companies and to the UK Poultry Research Liaison Group. Please send us your comments or suggestions on how we might make it even better and on items which you would like to see included.
If you would like us to include a link to your organistion, please send a short written request, giving your website address, together with permission to include it, to the Branch Secretary or direct to Richard by following the appropriate link on the website.
...and new Student Scholarship Scheme
TheUK Branch is keen to encourage students to take an interest in poultry science and so is launching a new Undergraduate Summer Vacation Scholarship Scheme for 2001. Full details of the scheme and an application form are available here.
In order to achieve its objective, details of this scheme need wide distribution. We therefore ask that all academic staff photocopy these details and draw them to the attention of appropriate students.
