> Fellowship Application Round Opens for ICANN 46 in Beijing, People's Republic
> of China
> 19 September 2012
> How Do I Apply for the Fellowship Program
> The Fellowship Program has demonstrated success in its mission to build
> capacity in the ICANN multi-stakeholder environment through focused
> interactive engagement between newcomers to ICANN and community members at
> each of the ICANN meetings. The program seeks to identify members of the
> Internet community who either have not previously been able to participate in
> ICANN processes and constituent organizations, or those who require further
> exposure to the Internet community and its work but cannot travel and attend a
> meeting without financial support. This outreach program seeks participants
> from developing regions and countries of the world, in order to help create a
> broader base of knowledgeable constituents who will become the new voice of
> experience in their regions and beyond.
> Applications to become an ICANN Fellow are assessed for each meeting by an
> independent selection committee. Priority is given to applicants who: meet
> minimum program requirements; are current residents of developing and least
> developed nations in the five ICANN regions; and are interested in
> participating in the ICANN multi-stakeholder process and its supporting
> organizations, advisory committees or stakeholder groups. An effort will be
> made to include participants from the Asia-Pacific region as the site of the
> ICANN meeting.
> All confirmed fellowship participants must comply with the terms and
> conditions of the Fellowship program, as outlined at
> http://www.icann.org/en/about/participate/fellowships/terms-conditions. As
> stated within these terms and conditions, ICANN is a California non-profit
> public benefit corporation and must therefore comply with all the laws and
> regulations of California and the United States. Fellows are responsible for
> obtaining all travel visas once accepted into the program. ICANN will purchase
> tickets for Fellows after all necessary documentation has been obtained and
> Fellows demonstrate that they have obtained all necessary travel visas.
> Once all of the requirements for travel are met, the Fellowship program
> arranges for and covers the costs for airfare and hotel, as well as providing
> a stipend to assist with some meeting and subsistence costs. The stipend is
> provided after each selected candidate successfully completes the requirements
> of the Fellowship program, Recipients will be expected to actively participate
> in and contribute to ICANN processes during and after the meeting. As always,
> registration for ICANN's meetings is free for anyone wanting to attend.
