The Moredun Foundation is delighted to announce that applications are now open for the 2019 Moredun Foundation Award Scheme.

The scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for individuals to pursue a short term project to broaden their education and experience in areas relating to livestock health and welfare and the agricultural industry. 

About the Scheme

Projects are open to individuals over the age of 18 living in the UK and who are members of the Moredun Foundation.  Projects may involve work experience, travel, or collaborations with science or the arts.

It is hoped that this award scheme will help support personal development, education and valuable experience for the successful applicants and contribute to Moredun’s mission to improve the health and welfare of livestock. 

The Moredun Foundation Award scheme is open to a wide variety of project proposals with £2,000 available per award.

Ian Duncan Millar, Chairman of The Moredun Foundation, is delighted to announce the launch of the next round of funding.  He commented:

We have been delighted by the quality of projects that this scheme has supported over the years. It is a great way for those interested in livestock health and welfare to pursue a short term project and further develop their own knowledge and skills within the industry. We are looking forward to supporting a new round of projects and individuals, helping to broaden their horizons, while adding useful knowledge to the promotion of livestock health and welfare.”

Professor Lee Innes, Moredun’s Director of Communications, added

We are very keen at Moredun to promote the value of education, experience and travel to improve understanding of the farming and livestock industries and provide individuals with the opportunity to further their experiences and personal development. We are very excited about the next round of funding and look forward to enabling individuals to develop their own project ideas and further their knowledge on livestock health and welfare.

The closing date for applications for a 2019 Moredun Foundation Award Scheme is Monday 20 May 2019.
