Reminder to Apply Now for an ARIN Fellowship to Attend ARIN 40

Posted: Wednesday, 31 May 2017

Applications are being accepted to ARIN's Fellowship Program now through 12 July for ARIN 40 in San Jose, California from 5-6 October 2017.

The fellowship program provides the opportunity for up to 15 individuals to attend a Public Policy and Members Meeting at no charge; including hotel accommodations at the meeting venue, round-trip economy class airfare, and a small stipend to assist with travel incidentals and meals. Selected fellows are also paired with a mentor for an enhanced meeting experience. Mentors include ARIN Advisory Council members, seasoned community members, and ARIN staff.

This year the domicile requirements have been removed and the ARIN Fellowship Program is now open to all individuals interested in Internet number resource policy in the ARIN region. However, the Charter for the Fellowship Selection Committee states that if a 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. 

Previous Fellowship recipients are encouraged to reapply and must submit a new application to be considered for a future fellowship. Note that ARIN no longer automatically considers past fellowship applications without the submission of a new application.

Anyone interested in applying to ARIN's Fellowship Program can do so now by visiting:

ARIN 40 Fellowships may be extended to include registration and hotel accommodations for the North Atlantic Network Operators Group (NANOG) 71 meeting, which will be held 2 - 4 October, directly adjacent to ARIN's meeting.
