Midlothian charity unveils project

The Moredun Foundation has launched a new scholarship to give individuals the chance to pursue a short-term project in livestock health and welfare and the agricultural industry.

The Moredun Foundation, based at the Pentlands Science Park, is a registered charity established by Scottish farmers in 1920. The organisation has grown significantly but still remains true to its roots and links to the farming and agricultural community.

It is hoped 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.

Three separate scholarship awards of up to £1000 each will be made in 2012. The closing date for applications is Wednesday, February 29, and further information and application forms are available to download from the Moredun website www.moredun.org.uk/scholarship
