Fellowship Application Round Opens for ICANN 48 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

1 May 2013

How Do I Apply for the Fellowship Program

The Fellowship Program has demonstrated success in its mission to build
capacity in the ICANN multi-stakeholder environment through focused
interactive engagement between newcomers to ICANN and community members at
each of the ICANN meetings. The program seeks to identify members of the
Internet community who either have not previously been able to participate
in ICANN processes and constituent organizations, or those who require
further exposure to the Internet community and its work but cannot travel
and attend a meeting without financial support. This outreach program seeks
participants from developing regions and countries of the world, in order to
help create a broader base of knowledgeable constituents who will become the
new voice of experience in their regions and beyond.

Applications to become an ICANN Fellow are assessed for each meeting by an
independent selection committee. Priority is given to applicants who: meet
minimum program requirements; are current residents of developing and least
developed nations; and are interested in participating in the ICANN
multi-stakeholder process and its supporting organizations, advisory
committees or stakeholder groups. An effort will be made to include
participants from the African region as it is the site of this ICANN

All confirmed fellowship participants must comply with the terms and
conditions of the Fellowship program, as outlined at
http://www.icann.org/en/about/participate/fellowships/terms-conditions. As
stated within these terms and conditions, ICANN is a California non-profit
public benefit corporation and must therefore comply with all the laws and
regulations of California and the United States. Fellows are responsible for
obtaining all travel visas once accepted into the program. ICANN will
purchase tickets for Fellows after all necessary documentation has been
obtained and Fellows demonstrate that they have obtained all necessary
travel visas.

Once all of the requirements for travel are met, the Fellowship program
arranges for and covers the costs for airfare and hotel, as well as
providing a stipend to assist with some meeting and subsistence costs. The
stipend is provided after each selected candidate successfully completes the
requirements of the Fellowship program, Recipients will be expected to
actively participate in and contribute to ICANN processes during and after
the meeting. As always, registration for ICANN's meetings is free for anyone
wanting to attend.
