NextGen Ambassador Program
In an effort to maintain Program consistency and build upon the relationship between members of the NextGen@ICANN program and ICANN community and staff, the role of NextGen Ambassador has been established. Individuals who have successfully completed a previous NextGen@ICANN program are encouraged to apply for the role of Ambassador. A NextGen Ambassador is required to mentor new members in order to expedite their understanding of the ICANN community and related ICANN topics.
- Have successfully completed a previous NextGen@ICANN
- Ambassadors are required to attend all NextGen sessions during the ICANN meeting and provide support at the ICANN information booth with ICANN Fellowship Alumni.
Applicants will be evaluated on their written explanation of how they have remained active in Internet Governance and/or regional or global ICANN work since their initial NextGen experience. Applicants will also explain how they plan on engaging the new NextGen members before, during, and after the ICANN meeting. An outline or plan for their own participation in the meeting may also be considered.
