     Ensuring Global Voices Heard at ICANN Cairo Meeting

Those interested in participating encouraged to apply to Fellowship Program

20 May 2008

*MARINA DEL REY, Calif.*: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers is putting out the call for fellowship program applications
for its 33rd International Public Meeting to be held in Cairo from 2-6
November 2008.

"As a global organization, coordinating a bottom-up consensus driven
policy process, it's important that ICANN has input from every corner of
the globe. The fellowship program helps ensure we have participation at
ICANN meetings from people and places that may not be able to
participate otherwise," said Theresa Swinehart , ICANN's Vice President,
Global and Strategic Partnerships.

At the most recent meeting held in New Delhi, India, in February, there
were 18 fellows from 15 countries who played an active role at the
meeting. They were chosen from 72 applications received. Of the fellows
at the New Delhi meeting, five had been deferred from previous round
selection, 11 had never attended an ICANN meeting before, and one was an
alumnus from the San Juan meeting.

Priority is given to applicants who are current residents of developing
and least developed nations and interested in participating in ICANN and
its supporting organizations, such as the Governmental Advisory
Committee, the Country Code Names Supporting Organization, and the
Generic Names Supporting Organization. The fellowship program will
provide economy airfare, hotel and a stipend to the successful
candidates. Recipients will be expected to actively participate in and
contribute to ICANN processes, both at the meeting and in the future as
a member of the ICANN community. As always, registration for ICANN's
meetings is free for anyone wanting to attend.

Applications will be accepted from now until 12:00 pm PDT (UTC -7) 3
July 2008. More information, as well as a link to the application for a
fellowship, is available online at: possiblefraudstart
