March 2009.

“Just like the Internet, ICANN is global in scope in its operations,” said
Theresa Swinehart , ICANN's Vice President, Global and Strategic
Partnerships. “Our fellowship program, through the contribution of alumni
from the previous 7 meetings, continues to experience success in making sure
global voices are heard in the wide variety of public forums that it holds.”

For the upcoming Seoul Meeting, there are 35 fellows selected from 27
countries, chosen from 132 applications received. 10 of the fellows are
alumni from at least one of the past seven programmes; 21 fellows are
first-time attendees to any ICANN meeting and 4 have attended past meetings,
but are first time fellows. Priority is given to applicants who are current
residents of developing and least developed nations and interested in
participating in ICANN and its supporting organizations, such as the
Governmental Advisory Committee, the Country Code Names Supporting
Organization, and the Generic Names Supporting Organization. The fellowship
will assist in covering airfare, hotel and a stipend. Recipients will be
expected to actively participate in and contribute to ICANN processes. As
