What is the Young Scientist Award?
The Young Scientist Award program was created by Alltech, further emphasizing the company’s commitment to science and education. Alltech has created the competition in conjunction with animal and dairy science departments at various universities throughout the world in order to promote research and talent development. The program provides a unique opportunity for students to interact with one of the industry’s leading players in the animal feed industry and is divided into two phases, regional and international, for both undergraduate and graduate students.
Alltech invites students to participate in the regional phase of the program which begins in the fall semester of the school year. Participating students must submit a paper chosen from a list of topics relating to natural solutions to animal health challenges. The winners of the regional phase can progress to the international phase, where each candidate is asked to submit a scientific poster and a presentation to a panel of judges. The international competition will be held at Alltech’s Global Headquarters in Kentucky during Alltech’s 25th International Animal Health and Nutrition Industry Symposium, which will take place May 17-20, 2009.
The winners of the undergraduate and graduate Young Scientist Awards will receive a scholarship of $5,000 USD and $10,000 USD respectively, as well as a trophy of recognition.
