A few words

About the Poultry Trust

In 1997, the Poultry Industry Education Trust was established by the Poultry Association Northern Ireland as a charitable trust. The Trust assumed two activities previously undertaken by the Association. These activities were the awarding of scholarships to students in higher education and the organisation of a biennial conference. The Trust operates throughout the island of Ireland.

The overarching educational objective of the Trust is to encourage students to join third level courses of relevance to poultry production and to provide support to students on these courses.
