The Crawford Fund is now calling for nominations for its Crawford Fund
Fellowship.

 

The Crawford Fund Fellowship provides further training for an agricultural
scientist whose work has shown potential. This prestigious award provides an
opportunity for the successful candidate to spend a period of focussed study
and training in Australia, with resulting benefits to the Awardee as well as
to their country's agriculture and Australia. 

 

Candidates should be below the age of 35 and from a selected group of
developing countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, East Timor, Fiji,
Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands,
Tonga, Tuvalu and Kirabati, Vanuatu, Vietnam.).  

 

The training will take place at an Australian institution and will emphasise
the application of knowledge to increase agricultural production in the
Fellow's home country. The closing date for nominations is cob 30 June 2014.
