MENOG Fellowship Programme


The MENOG Fellowship Programme provides basic assistance for successful applicants from the MENOG region1 to encourage participation in MENOG. The fellowship covers (partial) transportation costs and the costs of local accommodation associated with attending MENOG meetings and related events.


The MENOG Fellowship Programme is open to anyone from the Middle East who is actively involved in the development of the Internet. People in the following roles will be considered: Network engineers and operators, decision makers in government institutions, educators, trainers and representatives from non-government organisations and from the private sector.

The successful applicant will be provided with assistance to cover partial transfer meeting fee and accommodation. The funding will be organised with each successful candidate.

Expenses other than accommodation and travel (such as meals) are not covered by the Fellowship Programme and are the responsibility of the successful applicant.


The successful applicant is obliged to submit an evaluation form after the meeting is over.
