LOS ANGELES – ICANN's Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs) are invited to nominate one individual each (total of seven) to serve as a mentor in the ICANN Fellowship Program.

According to the Corporation, mentors will serve a term that includes three consecutive ICANN Public Meetings, beginning with ICANN68. They will provide extensive pre-meeting preparation and on-site support for their assigned fellows, as well as complete a survey after each meeting.

Mentors are expected to follow Fellowship Program guidelines to help ensure consistency in capacity development opportunities for fellows. They also play an important role to help fellows actively participate in ICANN's work. Mentors will receive travel funding support.

It should be noted that mentors cannot serve on the Fellowship Program's Selection Committee at the same time they are serving as mentors.
