The goals of the Fellowship Program are to help broaden the base of knowledgeable constituents engaged in ICANN's Multistakeholder process and to encourage the participation of new voices from around the world.

ICANN's current application round seeks prospective candidates for the June 2015 ICANN Meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The application process closes on 16 January 2015, with successful candidates announced on the ICANN website on 6 March 2015.

About the Fellowship Program:

Since its creation in 2007, the Fellowship Program has built a strong database of individuals who are active participants within ICANN communities, as well as within various Internet governance organizations. Their engagement includes writing articles and blogs, providing online or in-person public comments about bottom-up policy development, engaging in Internet conferences and discussions, mentoring Newcomers and assisting ICANN's regional leaders. These activities lead to Fellows becoming leaders themselves, who are committed to preserving and enhancing the operational stability, reliability, security, and global interoperability of the Internet.
