On behalf of the Asia Pacific Internet Association (APIA), we congratulate the successful candidates and thank all those who applied for a fellowship. We encourage all unsuccessful applicants to reapply for future conferences.
The APRICOT fellowship program places special emphasis on supporting diversity in the community, and the fellowship committee is pleased to have awarded fellowships to six women, from the Solomon Islands, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Tuvalu, and the Cook Islands.
The candidates will have the opportunity to learn from international and regional experts, meet new industry peers at the conference and networking sessions, and return home with new insights to aid them in their professional development.
Special thanks go to the supporters of the program: ISOC, InternetNZ, and the 2015 Japan Exco for their funding contribution to allow participants from developing economies attend APRICOT 2016. Many thanks also go to the APRICOT Fellowship Committee for their tireless efforts during the selection process.
APRICOT 2016 will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 15 to 26 February 2015.
