Scholarships available for livestock projects

Statistics from

The Moredun Foundation recently launched a new scholarship to provide opportunities for individuals to pursue short-term projects to broaden their education and experience in areas relating to livestock health and welfare and the agricultural industry.

It hopes that these scholarships will support and encourage innovative and diverse projects and contribute to Moredun's mission to improve the health and welfare of livestock.

At the launch on December 13, 2011, Professor Julie Fitzpatrick, chief executive of the Moredun Foundation said: ‘Moredun acknowledges the value of education, experience and travel to improve understanding of the farming and livestock industries. We are very excited about this new venture and look forward to enabling innovative individuals to develop their own project ideas.’

Three scholarship awards of up to £1000 each will be made this year. Projects may involve work experience, travel, collaborations with science or the arts and are open to individuals over the age of 18 living in the UK, with the condition that they are a member of the Moredun Foundation at the time of applying.

The closing date for applications for a 2012 Moredun Foundation Scholarship is Wednesday, February 29. Successful applicants will be notified in writing by March 30, and projects must be completed by August 31.

Further information and application forms are available to download from the Moredun website
