> Please find below information about the trial fellowship programme at

> fellowships this time because prices are so high for airline tickets
> especially. Given that ICANN has rotating meetings, each region will get
> more participants from its region as meetings come to that region. Please
> read the information carefully and apply directly online.
>  Good luck.

> *Overview *
> *What is ICANN? *
> **The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is
> responsible for the global coordination of the Internet's system of unique
> identifiers. These include domain names (like .org or .museum, and country
> codes like .UK), as well as the addresses used in a variety of Internet
> protocols. Computers use these identifiers to reach each other over the
> Internet. Careful management of these resources is vital to the Internet's
> operation. ICANN's global stakeholders meet regularly to develop policies
> that ensure the Internet's ongoing security and stability.
> The domain name system (DNS) and Internet Protocol (IP) addressing systems
> rely on global input and perspectives in order to ensure they continue to
> function in a stable and secure fashion. ICANN's fellowships program helps
> ensure that voices from all regions of the world have the opportunity to
> provide that input.
> *What is an ICANN fellowship and who are the fellowships for? *
> An ICANN fellowship is a one time grant of support to enable attendance at
> an ICANN organised meeting. They are awarded to enable individuals from
> stakeholder groups from around the world to attend ICANN meetings. The
> fellowship covers the cost of airfare, hotel and basic expenses. Recipients
> are expected to actively contribute to ICANN processes and be a part of the
> next generation of ICANN leadership.
> ICANN Government advisory committee representatives and ccNSO members from
> eligible countries will be prioritised but anyone (apart from participants
> in the ICANN At-Large advisory committee, which has its own programme) is
> welcome to apply.
> *How are the fellowships awarded? *
> Fellowships are awarded by a selection committee based on a mix of
> criteria including applicant experience and references, geographic proximity
> to meeting, receipt of past fellowships, etc.
> Due to financial limitations ICANN may not be able to provide fellowships
> for all applicants. In the case of a dispute or similar applications final
> decisions will be made by the fellowships committee<http://www.icann.org/fellowships/fellowship-committee.htm>.

> *Overview of fellowship procedures*
> The fellowship agreement with ICANN includes several clauses that relate
> directly to travel and related expenses. Please note that all ICANN
> supported air travel will be by economy class and use the most direct and
> economical routing. See ICANN Fellowship Terms and Conditions<http://www.icann.org/fellowships/terms-and-conditions.htm>

> Per diem costs are covered via a lump sum stipend of US$ 300.00 for the
> entire period of the fellowship. The stipend will be provided to each fellow
> upon his or her arrival at the meeting.
> During the fellowship fellows are responsible for their own personal
> health and safety. Fellows should consult travel and health advisories in
> advance of the fellowship.

> join a network of ICANN fellowship alumni. This global network will provide
> instant connections with peers worldwide who share a common interest in
> ICANN related issues.
> Please note that consideration for future fellowships will depend on
> active contribution to ICANN policy development processes. Completion of
> post-fellowship reports and feedback forms is a critical part of gauging the
