Fellows from across the region attending APRICOT 2017 in Viet Nam.

Fellowship applications are open for Asia Pacific’s largest international Internet technologies and operations conference, APRICOT 2023, being held from 20 February to 2 March 2023 in Manila, Philippines.

APRICOT fellowships give individuals from developing economies in the Asia Pacific region the opportunity to learn from regional and international experts, network with other Internet professionals, gain new industry insights, and engage in industry discussions.

Applicants need to be actively involved in Internet development in any of the following capacities:

  • Network engineering, network operations, and network design
  • Internet systems engineering and systems operations
  • Education, training, research and academia

Applicants for the APRICOT Fellowship need to:

  • Demonstrate a track record in sharing what is learned with colleagues and peers
  • Describe their local Internet community involvement in a technical or operational capacity
  • Demonstrate financial hardship that would make participation in APRICOT otherwise impossible

    Hello Mandu Moses Okondo. The APRICOT Fellowship programme is for the Asia Pacific region only, as our focus is on helping improving technology and operational skills in Asia and the Pacific. The annual African Internet Summit/AfNOG has a similar initiative to support infrastructure development across Africa and I’d encourage you to get involved there when the next event happens in 2023.
