The Crawford Fund is a not-for-profit organisation that raises awareness of the benefits to Australia and developing countries of Australia’s engagement in international agricultural research and development; supports training programs for developing country scientists and farmers, drawing on Australian experience, and encourages and supports young Australians in their careers, studies and volunteering in agriculture for development.
This year the conference scholar program will run from 13-15 August around the Fund’s 2018 annual conference, titled “Reshaping Agriculture for Better Nutrition – The Agriculture, Food, Nutrition, Health Nexus.” This key national food security event will ask “how can we feed and nourish the world’s increasing population with a diet that promotes good health and at the same time minimises further environmental impact?”
Scholarships include attendance of the conference and two half days of activities; conference registration fees, reasonable transport, food and accommodation costs.
Conference scholars agree to make a presentation at a relevant academic, research or other institute or group; work to enhance interest amongst their peers in international agricultural research; and provide a 500-word article outlining how they benefited from the conference and what they considered to be the highlights. These articles will be included in the Crawford Fund e-newsletter and website.
