The Fellowship Program
The ICANN Fellowship program seeks out those who are interested in, or already engaged in, the various components of ICANN's work in policy building, the operation of the Domain Name System and the security and stability of the global Internet. The goal of the program is to help create a broader base of knowledgeable constituents to engage in the ICANN multistakeholder process and become the new voice of experience in their regions and on the global stage.
Since its creation in 2007, the Fellowship program has built a strong group of individuals who are actively participating in all of the ICANN communities as well as various Internet governance entities within the Internet ecosystem. Their engagement ranges from writing articles and blogs, providing online or in-person public comment in regard to bottom-up policy building, engaging in Internet conferences and panel discussions, participating in working groups, mentoring newcomers, assisting our regional leaders and becoming leaders themselves.
