Application is opened from 1st to 31st March 2020. Successful fellows will be notified by 12th April 2021.
Selected fellows would be required to undertake mandatory online learning programmes from 20th April - 20th May.
The face-to-face training (subject to situational analysis of the Covid-19 pandemic) would be held from 28th June to 2nd July 2021 at a venue in Accra to be communicated to the Fellows later. The fellowship is free and selected Fellows are NOT required to pay. Some of the Fellows might be provided with accommodation as was done during the first edition. The face-to-face sessions are full day events, hence, it cannot be combined with work. Fellows are required to participate fully in order to be a qualified Fellow of the Ghana School on Internet Governance (GhanaSIG).
No educational qualification is required to apply, however, it is expected that the selected Fellows should be able to read, write and speak English with ease. Females are encouraged to apply.
Prior to the face-to-face training, selected Fellows will be required to undertake a series of online learning courses that will introduce them to the concept of internet governance, such as history of internet, introduction to ICANN, introduction to internet governance, among others. The face-to-face session will be handled by experts and experienced internet governance people from Ghana and abroad. Essential topics that will be handled during the face-to-face training include the multistakeholder aspect of internet governance, digital right, actors in the internet governance ecosystem, how to start engaging in the internet governance ecosystem etc.
At the end of the Fellowship, the Fellows will be fully equipped with the necessary know-how to make impact in the broad and vibrant internet governance ecosystem. Above, all, the Fellows will be qualified GhanaSIG Fellows.
