In addition to expert guidance, fellows will also receive project management, advocacy, and diplomacy know-how, providing the foundation for fellows to become future champions of the internet. The program is designed for a cohort of 15 fellows, who will develop their knowledge and skills through seminars, events, courses, discussion sessions, and project work. Fellows will also have networking, mentoring, and collaboration opportunities. The program culminates in a final project presentation by each fellow at a closing symposium.
