Announcing the Inaugural At-Large Tribal Ambassador Fellowship to the ICANN 57 Meeting in India
The At-Large Tribal Ambassadors Project addresses the digital divide throughout indigenous communities and specifically aims to generate increased awareness and understanding of Internet governance development within un-served and under-served Tribal communities. The Tribal Ambassadors, in representing indigenous groups in the US and Canada, will be assigned a Coach with a goal to gain overall ICANN experience and understanding of the Internet multi-stakeholder community. Additional details and requirements are available on the At-Large Tribal Ambassadorship Workspace (see: https://community.icann.org/x/vw6bAw [https://community.icann.org/x/vw6bAw] ).
The Fellowship covers travel, hotel, transportation costs, and a stipend to Hyderabad, India for the duration of the ICANN meeting for two Tribal Ambassadors from November 3-9, 2016. Applicants will need a passport and Visa for travel. Visa fees will be covered by the Tribal Ambassadorship Fellowship as part of the travel support .
Applications can be found at this link, https://goo.gl/forms/gz9XQs7vzM5V4L693 [https://goo.gl/forms/gz9XQs7vzM5V4L693] . The application deadline is August 14, 2016.
ABOUT THE PRO JECT
Th e At-Large T ribal Ambassadors Project is a complement to the current ICANN Fellowship program [http://bit.ly/2avhLDF] that has a goal to create a broader and more regionally diverse base of knowledgeable constituents to build capacity within the ICANN Multi-stakeholder Model. Participation in the program at an ICANN Meeting is a "fast track" experience of engagement into that community model, with presentations designed to facilitate understanding of the many pieces and parts of ICANN while providing opportunities to network and promoting interaction with staff and community leaders.
WHO MAY APPLY FOR AND BE AWARDED A TRIBAL AMBASSADORS PROJECT FELLOWSHIP?
The Project is targeted at individuals who identify with, or are part of an indigenous group in the US and Canada. These people are either new to the ICANN environment, are familiar with ICANN but have yet to attend a face-to-face meeting, or have started participating in ICANN by other means but are in need of travel funding in order to broaden their knowledge and deepen their engagement. Priority will be given to constituent members of Native Public Media (NPM), Indigenous members of other NARALO At-Large Structures in the US or Canada and to NARALO unaffiliated members. Other Indigenous individuals, not in NARALO, are also encouraged and welcome to apply. The only requirement is that these individuals must NOT be involved in other ICANN supported travel programs at time of selection.
HOW ARE THE TRIBAL AMBASSADOR PROJECT FELLOWSHIPS AWARDED?
Tribal Ambassador Project Fellowships are awarded by an independent selection committee based on a mix of criteria including applicant experience and references. The Selection Committee names are listed on this webpage as well as a description of the project (see: https://community.icann.org/x/vw6bAw [https://community.icann.org/x/vw6bAw] ).
