I make this comment in my personal capacity as a member of the ICANN
community and it is not related in any way with my role of Vice Chair of the
GNSO and in any way reflects any opinion from the GNSO council.

About the Fellowship program:

Fellowship Selection Committee - Transparency:

For making the selection process more transparent, the names of the members
of the independent selection committee should be available in the ICANN web
page, including their background and statement of interest.
It could be good to know how they are selected, if there is a regular call
for applications, and how long they serve in their positions.

Fellow┬┤s Selection Process:

The geographically weighted process sets aside  candidates of locations that
are geographically very far away from most of the main cities of the world,
like for example the southern cone of South America (Argentina, Chile,
Paraguay, Uruguay). Candidates from these countries have usually less
chances of being selected than others.
A different selection process should be developed in order to solve this
geographic gap.

Thanks for allowing me to send these comments.
