The Crawford fund provides funding for short courses for scientists from developing countries that are related to agricultural and food security. Applications can be made at any time. Funding is provided to the fund from the Commonwealth in association with ACIAR and from the State Government through PIRSA.
Dr Albert Rovira has been coordinating the fund in SA for over 12 years and has now handed the role onto Mr Roger Wickes who worked in the Soil and Water Environs on the Waite Campus for many years and is now semi retired.
