Learn About ICANN Fellowship Program

While the majority of responders in yesterday’s poll about attending an ICANN meeting have not attended an ICANN meeting before, a majority of responders in the second poll would like to attend an ICANN meeting. ICANN meets tri-annually, in locations throughout the world, with a goal of including as many interested parties as possible.

In the comment section of yesterday’s article, Antony Van Couvering from Minds & Machines shared some information about the ICANN Fellowship program, which gives people the opportunity to attend an ICANN meeting for practically no cost. “The fellowship covers the cost of economy class airfare and hotel, as well as providing a stipend after successful completion of the program, in order to assist in covering some basic expenses incurred by the fellow.”

Antony cautioned that people in the US may not be able to attend because it’s somewhat of a needs-based program. In fact, for the meeting in Durban that is taking place right now, there are 29 ICANN Fellows, and none of those Fellows are from the United States or even North America.

Because my blog has a fairly extensive readership made up of people from throughout the world, I wanted to share information about this opportunity in case someone would like to apply to become a Fellow.

The video embedded above offers more insight into what the ICANN Fellowship program is all about, and perhaps you’ll be inclined to apply and participate. I wish you all the best if you are selected.
