Moredun recognises the value of education, collaboration, experience and travel to improve understanding of the farming and livestock industries, support personal development, and to encourage innovative and diverse contributions to Moredun’s mission to prevent and control infectious diseases of livestock.

As part of its charitable activities, the Moredun Foundation has established an award scheme to provide an opportunity for individuals in the UK to pursue a short term project to broaden their education and experience in areas relating to livestock health and welfare and the agricultural industry. 

The Moredun Foundation Award (initially launched as the Moredun Foundation Scholarship in 2012) has been able to support individuals in fulfilling a wide variety of projects and activities over the past 6 years and seeks to continue to provide an opportunity for Moredun members to gain experience and personal development within the livestock health industry.

The TMF Award scheme is open to a wide variety of project proposals. Whether you would like to:

  • Acquire a new skill or technique
  • Learn from farming practices in another country
  • Develop an app to aid the livestock industry
  • Carry out a survey to find out current opinion
  • Support livestock health in a developing country
  • Run a small scientific project
  • Create an animated learning tool
  • Identify awareness and knowledge levels of a livestock health issue
  • Carry out some work experience
  • Or something completely different

The Moredun Foundation would like to hear from you.  Apply for a TMF Award and move a step closer to achieving your goal.
