The 7th Global Conference on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries (GAF7) was held at Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand in October 2018. It has been agreed that part of the proceeds from GAF7 be converted to fellowship to support students study gender in aquaculture/ fisheries.

We would like to congratulate Ms. Nant May Than Htay from Myanmar, and Ms. Sujata Timelsina from Nepal to be awarded the fellowship.
