2019 Student Awards

Our 2019 Student Awards, part of our efforts to support and encourage the next generation, help you bring an international component to your studies and research, and gain practical experience in a developing country.
Applications close 29 March.

TRAINING

IRRI Collaboration

Brooke Kaveney attended the ‘Rice Research to Production course’ at the International Rice Research Institute in August 2018 with two other Australian university students, who were also supported by the Crawford Fund.

IN FOCUS

Crawford Fund Fellowship

The Crawford Fund Fellowship provides further training to agricultural scientists from developing countries whose work shows significant potential, and nominations are now invited for the 2019 Crawford Fund Fellowship. Applications close 19 April.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

Healthy Diets

Transforming to healthy diets by 2050 will require drastic changes and the global food system faces major challenges related to rapid urbanisation, changing diets and climate change.

Farming on Thin Ice

Later this year, two young agricultural researchers who are both former Crawford Fund scholars and now RAID Network members, will be setting off to Antarctica. They were selected to take part in an incredible 12-month program with a cohort of 95 women in STEMM from around the globe.
Pacific Pearl Industry

Samantha Nowland undertook a two-week study tour of Tonga and Fiji to visit women’s groups involved in the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) project “Developing pearl industry-based livelihoods in the Western Pacific.”
