About the Program
Unmatched access to top experts is provided by the Early Career Fellowship, including distinguished researchers from the Oxford Internet Institute and Professor Dr. Laura DeNardis of American University. It also provides expertise in advocacy, project management, and diplomacy, laying the groundwork for fellows to go on to become Internet advocates in the future.
Once a year, a cohort of fifteen fellows is chosen to take part in the five-month program. Fellows can advance their knowledge and abilities by participating in workshops, conferences, seminars, debates, and project work. They will also have the chance to collaborate, network, and receive mentoring. Each fellow presents their final project at a closing symposium, which serves as the program’s capstone.
Internet Society Early Career Fellowship 2024
Our lives have been improved by the abundance of possibilities and opportunities found on the Internet. Here, we work together, exchange ideas, and deepen our relationships. We work, study, interact, and innovate there.
The fundamental values of the Internet—an open architecture and a collaborative culture aimed at achieving the common good—have allowed it to grow and change over time.
There are more and more challenges to the core tenets of the Internet worldwide. Our Early Career Fellowship equips a new, diverse generation of Internet champions to help address these issues by bridging the divide between technology and politics and becoming defenders of an open, reliable, secure, and globally linked Internet.
Fellows will receive direct support to foster their professional progress in addition to access to Internet luminaries, which include today’s preeminent thinkers and organizations.
As a fellow, you will gain project management, advocacy, leadership, and communication skills that will enable you to realize your ideas.
