< back to list

Application Deadline: May 15, 2017

The Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association (APTLD) is pleased to call for
applications for its
APTLD Meeting Fellowships for APTLD72 (Tbilisi, 14-15
September 2017).

The Fellowships provide travels and accommodation, and daily subsistence (per diem)
support for successful applicants for the whole period of the Meeting, including the
preceding training session.

Proposals should consider the following:

* How the Fellow can pro-actively contribute to the APTLD meeting by making a
presentation on his/her registry’s operational, technical etc. updates and practices;

* What benefits the Fellow expects to take away as major outcomes and lessons
learnt at the Meeting and how he/she would foresee their further implementation
domestically.

Fellowships are awarded to those candidates whose proposals show the greatest
potential and eagerness to network and explore new opportunities for enhancement
their personal capacity and that of their registry. Please keep this in mind when
preparing your application, and please be specific.

Eligibility

Typically, APTLD Fellowships are open to all APTLD members from developing
countries and territories, and registries with the number of registrations under 20,000;
however, the APTLD Board makes its final decision basing on a broader consideration
of some other factors and with account of logistics and financial aspects. For a
complete list of eligibility criteria please visit the APTLD website at: www.aptld.org.

Expectations

In return for the acceptance of a fellowship, APTLD expects the following from its
recipients:

* Participation in the training session prior to APTLD72 on 12 -13 September 2017
(details will be made available soon)

* Delivery of a presentation as a part of the APTLD Meeting agenda (to be developed
soon)

* Post-meeting, submission of a written testimony (electronic version), including a
special section detailing the relevance of the Meeting and major takeaways from
it for the Fellow.
