    I don't know which definitions of "cover" would fit this usage:

    ( )
    "The Crafoord Prize covers the disciplines of astronomy, mathematics, geosciences and biosciences as a complement to the Nobel Prize disciplines. "

    I looked up this dictionary ( )

    Definition 3a reads "if a law, rule, or contract covers a particular situation, type of person etc, it includes or deals with that situation or person", which seems ok, but not really. A prize is a sum of money or some other object given to somebody, not a law, rule, etc. So definition 3a doesn't work.

    Definition 5 talks about money. So, would it work?
