Applications Open: Internet Society Ambassadors to the Internet Governance Forum

The twelfth annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 18 to 21 December 2017, on the theme, Shape Your Digital Future!

The Internet Society’s IGF Ambassadors programme provides the following support to participants:

  • A round-trip, economy class airline ticket to attend the meeting
  • Hotel accommodation for the duration of the meeting
  • US$400 stipend to offset incidental expenses
  • A certificate of participation after successfully participating in the IGF Ambassadors programme.
Participants should be prepared to pay for any other travel expenses not specifically outlined above. These may include, for example, visa application fees, travel needed to obtain a visa, travel medical insurance, and other related expenses. To avoid undue expenses, it is best that applicants confirm that a host country visa-issuing embassy is available in their country or within close proximity before applying for the IGF Ambassadors programme. Ambassadors may wish to use part of the $400 stipend to offset incurred costs, but please be aware that the stipend is not paid until the Ambassador arrives at the meeting.

Those of the age group 20-40, with an interest in Internet Governance and a commitment to serve the Internet,  who wish to apply for this fellowship, follow the instructions at page https://www.internetsociety.org/what-we-do/education-and-leadership-programmes/next-generation-leaders/igf-ambassadors-programme
