SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE TO OUR CONFERENCE AND SCHOLAR DAY – it may change their lives!
Would you like to help fund additional young scientists and students to attend our conference and the special Crawford Fund Scholars Day? You may have eligible people you would like to nominate and support for a Crawford Fund Conference Scholarship?
Past scholars have gone on to volunteer or work in international agricultural research projects in developing countries or to further study in a related field. Hear some of their stories in the video below and read their stories in the brochure at the link.
We encourage you to donate for this purpose. Individuals, organisations or companies that opt to make a donation will be listed in the conference proceedings, should they wish. Donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be provided for this purpose.
For general donations to the Crawford Fund Conference Scholarships, use our on-line facility.
On the donation form, in the comments field, you’ll be able to indicate you are supporting our conference scholarships. The Crawford Fund has Deductible Gift Recipient Status, so your contribution is tax-deductible.
You can also donate as you register to attend the conference.
If you would like to discuss supporting a specific individual, please contact:
Ms Cathy Reade
