AFRINIC Fellowship Program 2017 (Fully Funded to Lagos)
AFRINIC (African Network Information Center) is the regional Internet registry (RIR) for Africa. Following a proposal for setting up an Internet registry for Africa by several early Internet adopters in Africa, during an INET workshop in Malaysia (1997), a steering committee was set up to work on AFRINIC’s structure and business plan.
The idea behind the initiative was to adapt the allocation policies applied by the already established RIRs (RIPE NCC and APNIC) to Africa’s realities.
AFRINIC is offering fellowships for the AFRINIC-27 meeting to be held in Lagos, Nigeria, from 27 November to 2 December 2017. The fellowship is reserved for individuals representing small organizations, universities, and media who are actively involved in Internet operations and development or ICT policies in their countries.
The fellow is expected to positively and actively contribute to IP address management awareness in the AFRINIC service region.
