Internews’ Global Technology team and the Global Network Initiative (GNI) welcome applications for the next one-year GNI-Internews Fellowship Program, which seeks to further online freedom of expression and privacy around the world by facilitating collaboration and conversation among diverse stakeholders.

Three to six one-year fellowship grants of US$10,000 to US$20,000 will be awarded to organisations based in South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Fellowships include funding to participate in four GNI board meetings and networking events, and engage in GNI activities, including but not limited to: participation in policy and learning calls on digital rights issues; development of policy analysis papers; and attendance at regional multi-stakeholder meetings.

Fellows will engage directly with a wide variety of information and communications technology (ICT) company representatives within GNI’s unique multi-stakeholder platform.

Applications should be submitted by an individual who would participate in the fellowship on behalf of that individual’s organisation. The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm EST on October 10, 2019.
