Are you at university studying agriculture, animal production, fisheries, forestry, natural resource management or any area related to food and nutrition security? Would you like to explore your subject area in an international agricultural project context?
If so, we have awards available to help you bring an international component to your studies and research, and gain valuable practical experience in a developing country.
As part of our efforts to support and encourage the next generation in study, careers and volunteering in international agricultural research, the Crawford Fund proudly supports our Student Awards in International Agriculture, provided by each of our State and Territory Committees.
Our Student Awards have been developed specifically to enable your practical, feet-on-the-ground, involvement in an overseas project as part of your university studies.
Building on the success of our past awardees, in 2019 all of our committees are again offering these awards so university students in every State and Territory have access to this great opportunity.
The conditions and requirements for the State and Territory Committees’ awards differ in terms of eligibility, the maximum award amount, and the number of awards provided so we encourage you to look at the webpage for the committee in which your institution is based, and then to make contact with the coordinator in your State/Territory with your queries. Contacts are below.
We also strongly recommend you read the general background information before you start your online application. The short online application form will require you to attach a brief CV, the signatures of, or a supporting note from, the Authorised Officers approving your application, and details of at least one referee. Your health and safety are paramount to us so you will be asked to provide details of relevant arrangements for this purpose too.
The closing date for all awards is Friday, 29 March 2019.
