The objective of the APAN Fellowship Program is to promote “Global collaboration” through participation in APAN meetings. It is hoped that the meeting provides you with the right environment to “network” with other researchers, engineers and students. It is also the intent that the participant will promote Global Collaboration in their local community after the meeting. Fellowships are offered on a competitive basis. Students (graduates and undergraduates) are encouraged to apply, and early-career young researchers may also be accorded a fellowship. Applicants whose papers are accepted for presentations will have favoured status. You will be asked to describe the benefits to you, your organisation and to APAN of receiving a Fellowship. During the meeting, we also ask Fellows to assist with the running of the meeting, without interfering with your participation in sessions. Please note, due to a large number of drop-outs at the last minute owing to the unavailability of airfares, it is necessary to prove that the applicant has support for airfare at the time of application.
