Internet Society Early Career Fellowship: Dr. Laura DeNardis, a professor at American University, and other distinguished academics from the Oxford Internet Institute are among the top specialists to whom the Early Career Fellowship provides unrivaled access. Additionally, it provides expertise in project management, advocacy, and diplomacy, laying the groundwork for fellows to progress into future Internet advocates.
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.
