Scholarship offer at Penicuik centre

APPLICATIONS are now open for the 2013/14 Moredun Foundation Scholarship.

The Moredun Foundation, based at Pentlands Science Park, is a registered charity which governs the work of the internationally recognised Moredun Research Institute.

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

Up to three scholarship awards of £1,000 each will be made in 2013/14.

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 the scholarships will support and encourage innovative and diverse projects and contribute to Moredun’s mission to improve the health and welfare of livestock.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, July 31.
