The objective of the APAN Fellowship Program is to promote “Global collaboration” through applicants participation in APAN meetings, which is held twice yearly. It is hoped that the meeting would provide them with the right environment to “network” with other researchers. It is also the intend that the participant will promote Global Collaboration among their local community after the meeting.

Fellowships are offered on a competitive basis, to be chosen from participating economies in APAN. Specifically, students (graduates and undergraduates) are encouraged to apply, although young researchers may be accorded sponsorship. Applicants whose papers are accepted for presentations will have favored status. A short note from the candidate on his/her “Motivation to Participate” may also help the reviewers in their final selection. Due to the large number of declines at the last minute owing to unavailability of airfare, it is necessary to prove that the applicant has support for airfare at the time of application.
