The Moredun Foundation is delighted to announce that applications are now open for the 2016 Moredun Foundation Award Scheme.
The newly launched Moredun Foundation Award 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. The scheme replaces the Moredun Foundation Scholarships and sees the funding available per project rise to £2,000. Projects are open to individuals over the age of 18 living in the UK and may involve work experience, travel, or collaborations with science or the arts.
It is hoped that this award scheme will encourage innovative and diverse projects, help support personal development, and contribute to Moredun’s mission to improve the health and welfare of livestock.
Ian Duncan Millar, Chairman of The Moredun Foundation, is delighted to announce the launch of this revamped scheme. He commented, “We have been delighted by the quality of projects that the scholarship has supported over the past five years. It is hoped that its successor, the new Moredun Foundation Award Scheme, will continue to support individuals and 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 the horizons, while adding useful knowledge to the promotion of livestock health and welfare.”
Professor Lee Innes, Moredun’s Director of Communications, added, “Moredun acknowledges 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 scheme and look forward to enabling innovative individuals to develop their own project ideas.”
The closing date for applications for a 2016 Moredun Foundation Award Scheme is Monday 29 February 2016. Successful applicants will be notification in writing by Thursday 31 March 2016.
