Fellowship Program (ARIN 52)
Internet number resource policy, like other areas of Internet governance, is powered by community participation. To encourage and foster new voices and active members within the ARIN region, the ARIN Fellowship Program provides a specialized, interactive learning opportunity to individuals interested in these aspects of Internet operations and their professional growth in the industry.
A group of up to 10 Fellows is selected twice a year to participate in the month-long program before and during an ARIN Public Policy and Members Meeting. Fellows receive an in-depth, expert-guided introduction to the workings of the ARIN organization and Policy Development Process (PDP), along with opportunities for networking and direct participation in the PDP.
With the personal support of ARIN community member mentors, Fellows progress through an engaging and approachable agenda of presentations, discussions, and Q&As with ARIN leadership — including ARIN staff and Advisory Council members. The sessions provide an overview of Internet governance, Internet number resource policy and its development, ARIN services and operations, and the Internet Number Registry System.
ARIN 52 Fellows will participate in virtual sessions before the ARIN 52 Public Policy and Members Meeting and can choose to attend ARIN 52, held 19-20 October 2023 in San Diego, California, either virtually or in person. This program also includes funding for attending NANOG 89 (16-18 October in San Diego) upon request. The Applications for the ARIN Fellowship Program will be accepted 6-26 July 2023.
