Fellowships to attend NetThing 2019 are open!

One of the things we’ve cared about from the start is that inclusion is at the heart of a strong Internet community. We are excited that we can provide a free event – which includes lunch! And now, thanks to the generosity of several of our Sponsors, the NetThing 2019 Multi-stakeholder Steering Committee is able to open a fellowship program to support people to attend.

Calls for Expressions of Interest for a Fellowship is now open!

To be considered  for receipt of a full or partial  NetThing 2019 Fellowship, please email a brief outline of why being a part of the NetThing event and Internet Governance community is important to you. And a little about what you’d like to take from the experience, and give back. We have limited funds and are committed to helping people who truly need it, so if you can touch on your background, work status, and location that would be great. Plus anything other circumstances or supporting information that will help the Fellowship Committee in its selection process.

Send this to us by email to by no later than 1700 AEST on September 29.

Please specify clearly if you are seeking  travel support, accommodation support or other including any combination thereof, as well as details of your physical address, and contact details. NetThing aims to reduce or remove barriers to involvement and attendance at our event from all sectors of the Australian Community interested in Internet matters, policy and governance. To that end please also note if you feel you are representative of or acting as advocate for underrepresented or disadvantaged sectors.
