APNIC Fellowship Program

APNIC offers a limited number of Fellowships in three categories - professional, youth and returning - to community members in the region's developing economies to attend and participate in APNIC meetings. The Fellowship program places special emphasis on gender and geographical diversity.

At APNIC 46, additional fellowships will be available to Pacific Island applicants thanks to a generous sponsorship contribution from OPT-NC.

Selection process

A selection committee carefully evaluates all the applications. The committee then selects the applicants that it believes are best suited for the fellowship, taking into consideration a desire to provide opportunities to individuals from a diverse range of organizations and geographical locations within the APNIC service region.

The decisions of the selection committee are final and the selected applicants are informed individually. A list of selected Fellows is then announced on the APNIC conference website.

(Applicants who are not selected to receive a Fellowship award for the current APNIC conference are eligible and encouraged to apply for future APNIC conferences.)

Fellowship applications are closed.
