Call for APTLD81 Fellowships

< back to list

Application Deadline: 7 January 2022

The Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association (APTLD) is pleased to call for applications for its APTLD Meeting Fellowships to APTLD81 (to be held in hybrid format in Dubai, UAE) on 23-24 February 2022).

The Fellowships provide travel and accommodation, and daily subsistence (per diem) support for successful applicants for the whole period of the Meeting and its side events, if any. For details please refer to the Fellowship Package section of the respective policy.

Proposals should consider the following:

  • – How the Fellow can proactively contribute to the APTLD meeting by participating in individual sessions and AGM (the latter – for Ordinary Members only);
  • – What benefits the Fellow expects to take away as major outcomes and lessons learnt at the Meeting and how (s)he 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 of their personal capacity and that of their organization. Please keep this in mind when preparing your application, and please be specific.


Typically, APTLD Fellowships are open to both Ordinary and Associate APTLD members, from developing economies and territories, and ccTLD registries with the number of registrations under 50,000; however, the APTLD Board makes its final decision basing on a broader consideration of some other factors and with consideration of travel and financial aspects. For a complete list of eligibility criteria, the required documentation and the selection process, please refer to the respective policy and the UAE Safety and Anti-COVID Policy  

To ensure equal opportunities and representation for Members from the APTLD’s subregions the APTLD Board has determined that a total of 10 Fellowships to APTLD81 should be made available to the Membership, including:

  • – Middle East – 3 (three);
  • – South and South-East Asia – 3 (three);
  • – the Pacific – 2 (two);
  • – Eurasia – 2 (two).


In return for the acceptance of a Fellowship, APTLD expects the following from the successful applicants:

  • – Participation in APTLD81 on 23-24 February 2022 (the updated agenda will be made available soon);
  • – Presenting in or moderation of an APTLD81 session will be a plus
  • – Participation in the AGM (Ordinary Members only);
  • – Post-meeting, submission of a written testimonial (soft copy), including a special section detailing the relevance of the Meeting and major takeaways from it for the Fellow.
