The SANOG XXXIV Fellowship program has been made possible with a grant from the Internet Society (ISOC), and a very active support from APNIC. The Fellowship encourages folks from the South Asian Region to participate in the workshop, tutorials and conference. From this year WOMEN Applications for Fellowship will be significantly encouraged. With over 50% percent of the female population in the South Asian Region, rarely very few of them are regularly seen to be active in the Internet area.
