12-13 August 2019, Canberra
As part of our efforts to encourage young people in their study, careers and volunteering in international agricultural research we are continuing our very successful conference scholarships.
Scholarships are offered to young Australians and permanent residents with a genuine interest in international agricultural development, to attend the Crawford Fund conference in Canberra and a range of fun, informative activities around the event.
Former conference scholars confirm this is a unique learning, networking and mentoring opportunity. The positive feedback we received from last year’s Scholars is available here.
The scholars are involved in two ½ days of activities in addition to the conference and they have a personal mentor throughout their visit and engage with keynote speakers, experienced Australian agricultural researchers and educators, and other passionate young people who have experience overseas in developing countries as researchers, volunteers or mentors.
Since the program started in 2010, we have had more than 250 scholars participate. You can hear some of the scholars being interviewed from an earlier conference here.
HELP US SUPPORT YOUNG AUSTRALIANS TO OUR CONFERENCE AND SCHOLAR PROGRAM
To help us in our efforts, the Crawford Fund is offering delegates the opportunity to donate additional funds, above their registration fees, for this purpose.
