ICANN Announces Recipients of the ICANN75 Fellowship

23 June 2022

Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced the successful candidates selected to participate in the ICANN Fellowship Program at the ICANN75 Annual General Meeting. A total of 37 applicants from 32 countries will take part in the 17–22 September 2022 meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The successful candidates represent all sectors of society including civil, government, country code top-level domain operations, academia, business, technical, security and end-user groups.

The Fellowship Program seeks individuals who are interested or already engaged in the various aspects of ICANN's work, such as policy building, the operation of the Domain Name System, and the security and stability of the global Internet. The goal of the ICANN Fellowship Program is to strengthen the diversity of the multistakeholder model by creating opportunities for individuals from underserved and underrepresented communities to become active participants in the ICANN community.

The ICANN organization received 103 eligible applications for the ICANN75 Fellowship Program. If ICANN75 is held virtually, the Fellowship Program will also be held virtually.

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 nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
