The Crawford Fund :Crawford-in-SA International Agricultural Student Awards

Opening Date: 19-12-2017   Closing Date: 29-03-2018  

The Crawford Fund encourages greater recognition of the importance of international agricultural research and development to Australia by actively engaging in international agricultural research in developing countries.
The award takes the form of a bursary to a maximum value of $3000 per awardee, and can be used for airfares, other travel costs, accommodation and subsistence, and/or operational research costs.
The awards are open to Honours and Postgraduate Students enrolled in a South Australia university, with priority given to Australian nationals and permanent residents. Applicants should be engaged in a relevant biophysical or socio-economic aspect of agriculture, animal production, fisheries, forestry, natural resource management or food security. Applicants should be enrolled either at Honours Level (following a 3-year degree course), the fourth year of a four year degree course or in a postgraduate degree (Masters or PhD).
Applicants need to complete an application form and outline the benefits expected from the Crawford Fund Student International Agricultural Award. The benefits of the award could be through stronger linkages in research areas of interest to SA industry; understanding the application of technical knowledge to different agricultural systems; or knowledge that will help foster SA-developing country commercial engagement. Proposals will only be considered if they include a signed statement of approval from the university where the student is enrolled for the degree. It is expected that the successful applicants will be amenable to involvement in public awareness activities associated with the award. Awardees are required to provide a written report to the SA Crawford Committee describing what they learned during their Crawford Fund Student International Agricultural Research Award activities.
The closing date for award applications is COB Thursday, 29 March, 2018.
