Congratulations to all of our newly-selected fellows and thank you to everyone who applied to the ARIN Fellowship Program to attend ARIN 39!

We will soon begin accepting fellowship applications for ARIN 40 in San Jose, California, taking place 5-6 October 2017. When considering whether or not to apply, please bear in mind that at the 10 January 2017 ARIN Board of Trustees meeting, the Board voted to remove domicile requirements and to open the ARIN Fellowship Program to all individuals interested in ARIN regional Internet number resource policy. Applicants and selected fellows no longer have to be domiciled in the ARIN service region, however, the Charter for the Fellowship Selection Committee states that if the qualified applicant pool permits, three to five Fellows will be selected from each sector of the ARIN region: Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the United States and Outlying Areas. As always, past ARIN Fellows are encouraged to apply.
