Announcement 



The Fellowship Program for the 19th APAN Conference

Bangkok, Thailand (Jan.25 - 28, 2005)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. About the APAN Fellowship Program


For the upcoming APAN Meetings in Bangkok, Thailand, we will sequentially support Fellows to attend the meeting and workshops. The major conference will be held from January 25 through January 28, 2005.

Fellowships are offered on a competitive basis, to be chosen from participating economies in APAN. Specifically, students (graduates and undergraduates) are encouraged to apply, although young Ph.Ds may be accorded sponsorship. Applicants whose papers are accepted for presentations will have favored status. A short note from the candidate on his/her motivation to participate may also help the reviewers in their final selection.

Considerations will be given to individuals who are a part of APAN's primary and associate members, or affiliates and liaison members. However, since we design the Fellowship Program to encourage contributions to the further development in the APAN community, our selection priority will focus on candidates who exhibit such qualities. The ability to engage in collaborative research and development, with a mentor, or under the guidance of a professor, will be highly valued. After all, the Fellowship Program is for human resources development, and we wish to foster the development of talents who will impact on this community in the future.
