Fellowship and NextGen@ICANN Application Rounds for ICANN56
10 February 2016

On 22 January, lCANN launched the application rounds for both the
NextGen@ICANN and Fellowship Programs to participate in ICANN56 in Panama
City, Panama in June 2016.

On 5 February, ICANN announced that due to the severity of the Zika Virus
outbreak in the Latin America region, ICANN56 would be relocated and that a
search is underway to identify an alternate location where the Zika Virus is
not a concern. ICANN looks forward to returning to Panama for a future ICANN

What does this mean for Program Applicants?

As the NextGen@ICANN Program is region-specific, ICANN has suspended the
application process, pending the announcement of the new Meeting location.
Once the new location is announced, we will make a decision on the status of
this Program for ICANN56.

This round remains open for eligible Fellowship candidates until 19 February
2016 and successful Fellowship candidates will be announced on the ICANN
website, 25 March 2016.

As a reminder, an important distinction regarding this round of the
Fellowship Program is that only those who have previously participated in at
least one ICANN Fellowship can apply. This is due to the new ICANN Meeting
Strategy <https://meetings.icann.org/en/future-meeting-strategy>  / Meeting
B that is specifically focused on policy making and on-going work within
ICANN Communities, therefore only those Alumni of the Program who are
currently actively engaged in one of the ICANN Multistakeholder Model
Communities are eligible to participate.
The Fellowship Program
The ICANN Fellowship
<https://www.icann.org/en/about/participate/fellowships>  program seeks
participants from developing countries of the world in order to help create
a broader base of knowledgeable constituents to engage in the
Multistakeholder process and become the new voice of experience in their
regions and beyond. Since its creation in 2007, the Fellowship Program has
built a strong group of individuals who are actively participating in all of
the ICANN communities as well as various Internet Governance entities within
the Internet Ecosystem. Their engagement ranges from writing articles and
blogs, providing online or in-person public comment in regard to bottom up
policy building, engaging in Internet conferences and panel discussions,
lifting a pen in working groups, mentoring newcomers, assisting our regional
leaders and becoming leaders themselves.

The NextGen@ICANN Program (currently not available for ICANN56 Applications)
The NextGen@ICANN program remains the same for Meeting A, B and C: it is an
education and awareness based experience, designed for a smaller, younger,
and more region-specific group of participants. Applicants must be between
the ages of 18 and 30, live in the region of the meeting, and be engaged in
some level of higher education, with focus on Internet related subject
matter. Each selected member will deliver a 5-10 minute presentation on a
topic relevant to the community. Recent presentation topics include Internet
governance, DNS, and the future of the Internet.
