|Congratulations to those awarded fellows in APRICOT 2008! Please contact email@example.com for further details.
The APRICOT conference, convened annually since 1996, has been a unique and successful educational forum for Internet builders in the Asia-Pacific region, to learn from their peers and from leaders in the Internet community. Senior practitioners from the Asia Pacific and around the world contribute their time to APRICOT as presenters, teachers and trainers, to produce a non-commercial conference of consistently high-quality.
Since 2000, APRICOT has incorporated a Fellowship Program to provide opportunities to developing country personnel to participate in APRICOT.
This program provides basic assistance to successful fellows to cover local living and registration expenses associated with attending the conference.
The APRICOT 2008 Fellowship Committee now cordially invite suitable applicants to apply for fellowship funding to participate in APRICOT 2008 in Taipei.
To apply on-line, please proceed to the on-line application page.
The APRICOT Fellowship Program targets personnel from developing countries who are actively involved in Internet development, in any of the following
- Engineers (Network Builders)
- Decision Makers in government, educational, non-government and private sectors.
- Educators and trainers
Successful applicants will be provided with a reasonable (local host
standard) allowance for food and accommodation. In addition all fees for participation by fellows in the Conference, Tutorials and Social Events will be waived. The final grant size is determined according to final costs and available funding, and will be advised to successful applicants.
It should be noted that travel expenses are not funded by the Fellowship Program and are the responsibility of the successful fellow.
Again, travel expenses are the responsibility of the successful fellow.
APRICOT does not have the resources to cover airfares for successful fellowship applicants.
|Criteria for Selection
The APRICOT 2008 Fellowship Committee will select the fellows according to following criteria.
Applicants from any part of the world will be considered, however it is expected that the majority of fellows selected will be from the Asia-Pacific region.
