The Crawford Fund is now calling for nominations for its Crawford Fund Fellowship.


The Crawford Fund Fellowship provides further training for an agricultural scientist whose work has shown potential. This prestigious award provides an opportunity for the successful candidate to spend a period of focussed study and training in Australia, with resulting benefits to the Awardee as well as to their country’s agriculture and Australia.


Candidates should be below the age of 35 and from a selected group of developing countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, East Timor, Fiji, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Kirabati, Vanuatu, Vietnam.). 


The training will take place at an Australian institution and will emphasise the application of knowledge to increase agricultural production in the Fellow's home country. The closing date for nominations is cob 30 June 2014.

The current awardee is in Australia at the moment and was recently interviewed on ABC -
