I'm writing to enlist your help in getting information out to agricultural researchers in developing countries about the ATSE Crawford Fund Derek Tribe Award. 

The ATSE Crawford Fund Derek Tribe Award is made biennially to a citizen of a developing country in recognition of their distinguished contributions to the application of research in agriculture or natural resource management in a developing country or countries.


The recipient will attend a seminar, or other public event, nominated by The Crawford Fund, to receive the award and to deliver an address to be termed The Crawford Fund Derek Tribe Award Address - the 2001 address received some great publicity.


In addition, the recipient will undertake a visit of about two weeks to agricultural centres in Australia with the intention of enhancing networking and linkages between the recipient's home institution and country with similar bodies and individuals in Australia.

The inaugural ATSE Crawford Fund Derek Tribe Award was made in 2001 to Dr Sanjaya Rajaram from CIMMYT for his outstanding contributions and leadership in the breeding of bread wheats with increased yield potential and dependability, resistance to disease and tolerance to stress. 

Nomination forms and further information may be downloaded from The Crawford Fund homepage www.crawfordfund.org

Closing date for applications is 1 April so I hope that this note provides you with sufficient lee way to get the notice out and about. 

Many thanks if any of you can give me any help with this.

Kind regards,
Cathy Reade
