The ICANN Fellowship Program seeks to help create a broader base of knowledgeable constituents to engage in the ICANN multistakeholder process and become the new voice of experience in their regions and on the global stage.
Through the Fellowship Program, ICANN provides coaching and travel assistance for individuals to attend an ICANN Public Meeting. During the meeting, program participants immerse in a “fast-track” experience into ICANN‘s multistakeholder process, with presentations about the many parts of ICANN and opportunities to network and interact with ICANN community members and staff.

ISOCSVG Chapter Fellows experience ..
I had the privilege to attend two (2) ICANN meetings. The first was ICANN60 in Abu Dhabi, October 2017 and the second was ICANN62 Panama, June 2018 in. It was a great opportunity to learn about the multi-sectorial and multi-dimensional nature of ICANN, its policy work, to network and learn how as an individual I can get involve. I encourage everyone to get interested in ICANN work and do not become overwhelmed by all the different communities and working groups. By conducting research and networking with experienced members, anyone can find a place in the ICANN world and find an area where you make significant contribute.
