Fellowship Program



In today's world, no challenge stands in isolation. The interconnected nature of our world means that a global pandemic influences the worldwide supply chain. Climate change impacts economic growth and decline around the globe. Digital divides contribute to societal unrest, and societal unrest leads to the digital divide among societies. Anticipating, adapting to, and embracing change brought on by technological advancement requires a far greater understanding of the myriad of interconnected forces that shape our societies and economies. APAN platform is an effort, in this direction, to connect the communities and bridge the gap. Interested participants can directly register for the event through the registration portal; however, APAN also offers a fellowship program for eligible community members.

The APAN Fellowship Program aims to enhance global collaboration by engaging participants in APAN meetings. These gatherings offer a conducive environment for networking with fellow researchers, engineers, and students. The program also encourages participants to foster global collaboration within their local communities post-meeting. Fellowships are competitive, welcoming applications from students (both graduates and undergraduates) and early-career researchers. Those whose papers are accepted for presentations receive preferential treatment. Applicants are required to outline the benefits of receiving a Fellowship for themselves, their organizations, and APAN. Fellows are expected to assist in the meeting's organization while ensuring their active participation in sessions. To prevent last-minute drop-outs due to airfare unavailability, applicants must demonstrate airfare support at the time of application.
