AFRINIC-29 Fellowships Now Open

AIS18 fellows AFRINIC-28 Fellowship winners in Dakar Senegal.

AFRINIC-29 Fellowships are currently in the offing for individuals from African countries who have an interest in Internet operations and governance to participate in the AFRINIC public policy meetings. The call for applications for the AFRINIC-29 Fellowship is open until 24 August 2018.

The AFRINIC Fellowship is for individuals representing small organisations, universities, and media outlets that are actively involved in Internet operations, Internet infrastructure development, Internet access, Internet governance or ICT policy development in their countries and respective communities. To qualify for an AFRINIC Fellowship, you:

  • Must be a resident of an African nation
  • Don't need to be an AFRINIC member
  • Are involved in the Internet community
  • Are willing to report on how this fellowship has benefited you/your organisation/country within an agreed time frame.

The Fellowship provides basic financial assistance to the selected applicants, which usually covers the travel costs, hotel accommodation and basic daily living expenses associated with attending an AFRINIC Meeting. Fellows are invited to attend the full meeting week and may also attend any of the associated workshops, seminars and training courses that they are eligible for. AFRINIC Fellows are expected to actively contribute to IP address management awareness, policy development, Internet governance and/or infrastructure development in the region prior, during and after the meeting. Fellows are expected to attend every session, particularly the Policy Development sessions and will be required to provide reports on how the Fellowship has benefited them, their organisation and community within an agreed timeframe after the event.
