Application Deadline: 18 November 2023

The Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association (APTLD) is pleased to call for applications for its APTLD Meeting Fellowships to APTLD85 in Goa, India, on 19-22 February 2024.

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;
  • 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.


To ensure equal opportunities and representation for Members from the APTLD’s subregions the APTLD Board has determined that a total of 5 Fellowships to APTLD85 should be made available to the Membership, including:

  • Middle East – 1 (one);
  • South and South-East Asia – 2(two)
  • the Pacific – 1 (one);
  • Eurasia – 1 (one)
