Internet Leader Sponsorships to Global INET


Next Generation Leadership (NGL) participants have a unique perspective on leadership challenges and opportunities — and we want you in Geneva to share your voice.

As part of its 20th anniversary activities, the Internet Society will have its Global INET 22-24 April 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland.

ISOC’s Internet Leadership (IL) department is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to sponsor a limited number of our former Next Generation Leadership (NGL) programme participants. The IL team will also be running a Leadership Summit on Sunday, 22 April that would require the attendance and participation of the selected applicants.  Along with the Summit and sessions on Monday and Tuesday, selectees are also encouraged to attend the Chapter Workshop on Saturday, 21 April as part of realizing maximum benefit from the overall experience.

You have a unique opportunity to be selected as a Sponsored Attendee.  This sponsorship will include admission into the Global INET, airfare, hotel, and a small stipend to offset daily expenses.

If you have participated in our NGL programme and are a member of the Internet Society, we invite you to apply for this sponsorship.  The selection committee will review applicants and choose up to 20 participants.


Due to the tight timetable between the application period and the Global INET, it is critical that you determine whether you would be able to have your documents ready in time.  Before applying for IL sponsorship, please download and review the Before You Apply Checklist which will guide you through the questions you need to consider to determine whether you can expect to have your travel documents in the appropriate condition.

Applications close on 22 January 2012.

How to Apply

Registration for this Sponsorship is now closed.
