The Fellowship Program
is open to all applicants interested in, or already engaged in, the various
aspects of ICANN's work in policymaking, the operation of the Domain Name
System, and the security and stability of the global Internet. The goal of
the program is to help create a more diverse and a broader base of
knowledgeable constituents who can engage in the ICANN multistakeholder
process and become the new voices of experience in their regions and on the
global stage.

Since its creation 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. Participation
covers a range of activities:

   - Writing articles and blogs
   - Giving online or in-person public comments in ICANN's bottom-up policy
   development process
   - Participating in Internet conferences and panel discussions
   - Joining working groups
   - Mentoring newcomers
   - Assisting our regional leaders
   - Becoming leaders themselves

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 not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
