Virtual Fellowship Program (ARIN 50)
Internet governance and number resource policy are powered by community participation. To encourage and foster new voices and active members within the ARIN region community, the ARIN Fellowship Program provides a specialized, interactive learning opportunity to individuals interested in these aspects of the Internet and their professional growth in the industry.
Up to 12 Fellows are selected twice a year to participate in the month-long program before, during, and after 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 an ARIN community member mentor, 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 program’s four 90-minute sessions provide an overview of Internet governance, Internet number resource policy and its development, ARIN services and operations, and the Internet Number Registry System.
As a Fellow, you will have the opportunity to learn the ARIN Policy Development Process, ask questions, get feedback, and gain the knowledge and confidence to join in community discussions, propose new ideas, and become part of the future of Internet governance and policy in the ARIN region.
The Fellowship Program is open to individuals 18 years and older who reside in the ARIN region: Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the United States and Outlying Areas. The program is open to individuals from ARIN customer organizations or those with direct and visible engagement in the ARIN community and who have an interest in learning more about ARIN’s programs and services and Internet number resource policy in the ARIN region. Special consideration will be given to individuals who are new to the organization and have never attended an ARIN meeting but present a compelling case for being a part of this virtual program.
