In  regards to the changes in the  fellowship  program.  I endorse  the
changes for the  fellowship  program  to expand it's  selection  process to
the underserved communities   know as  Indigenous/First Nations/Natives and
in the United States as  Indians.  Many of the Indigenous  tribal
governments  have incomes similar to the  orginal guidelines used by the
 fellowship committee  ( World Bank information), unfortunately the  past
process used Canadian and US  incomes as a whole which has  discriminated
aganist very poor tribal reservation.

This historical error  which has not included them can be rectified by
inclusion of this group

As an active  ICANN participate, NARALO  Chair,  Vice Chair for  ALAC
Outreach and Engagement  I have observed the  great achievements of   past
 Fellows and NetGen to become  ALAC  members and leaders.  Noteworthy are
 Siranush  Vardayan, Maureen  Hilyard, Seun Ojedji ,Tijani  Ben Jemaa,
Fatima Cambronero,  Leon Sanchez and others  have become  leaders  in
LACRALO,  AFRALO,  APRALO . I  am  confident  that  the  inclusive of
 Indigenous  members  we  will see similar participation and  active
leadership  participation . Since  NARALO has  been supportive of their
 inclusion we are committed to providing onboarding support and mentoring
of the selectees.
