Deadline: July 26, 2023
Applications for the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) Fellowship Program 2023 are now open. 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.
- Individuals who are 18 years of age or older and reside in the ARIN region are eligible to apply if they have a demonstrated interest in the American Registry for Internet Numbers, Ltd., (“ARIN”) community and its Policy Development Process for the management of Internet number resources.
- Special consideration will be given to those who have not previously attended an ARIN Public Policy and Members Meeting before, who demonstrate a financial need, or who present a compelling case for being a part of this program.
- Applicants must understand the importance of ARIN’s mission and be familiar with ARIN services, including the Internet number resources it manages and the process reflected in the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM).
- Applicants should be subscribed to the ARIN Announce and ARIN Public Policy mailing lists and participate in all activities as outlined in the program description.
The Applications for the ARIN Fellowship Program will be accepted until July 26, 2023.
