Busan, Korea (Aug 24 - Aug 30, 2003)

 Attention: Accomodation extended to 5 nights!

1. About the APAN Fellowhip Program

For the upcoming APAN Fall Meeting in Busan, Korea we will once again support Fellows to attend the meeting and workshops. The conference will be held August 24 through August 30, 2003.

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. Afterall, 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.
