About the ICANN Fellowship Program

The ICANN Fellowship Program is open to all applicants interested or already engaged in various aspects of ICANN's work, such as policymaking, the operation of the Domain Name System, and the security and stability of the global Internet. The goal of the program is to strengthen the diversity of the multistakeholder by fostering opportunities for individuals from underserved and underrepresented communities to become active participants in the ICANN community.

Since its inception in 2007, the Fellowship Program has built a strong group of fellows who are actively participating in ICANN communities and in other Internet governance entities in the Internet ecosystem.

For more information on the program and how to apply, please visit the Fellowship Program page.


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.
