Call for SOs/ACs to Nominate Fellowship Program Mentors

16 October 2018

LOS ANGELES – 16 October 2018 – ICANN's Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs) are invited to nominate one individual each (total of 7) to serve in the capacity of mentor for the ICANN Fellowship Program.

Mentors will serve for three (3) consecutive ICANN Public Meetings, starting with ICANN65. They are expected to provide extensive pre-meeting preparation and on-site support for their assigned fellows and to complete a survey after each meeting.

Mentors are expected to follow program guidelines to help ensure consistency in the provision of capacity development opportunities for fellows. They will also play an important role in enabling and facilitating the active participation of fellows in ICANN's work. Mentors will receive travel funding support.

Each of the seven (7) SOs/ACs should indicate their chosen Fellowship Program Mentor by 14 December 2018 via email to fellowshipconsultation@icann.org. Individual self-nominations will not be considered.

About ICANN

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
