Out of 549 applicants from 15 West African countries, a total of successful candidates have been chosen to participate in the school from 22 to 24 May 2023.

The candidates represent a diverse range of sectors in society including civil society, government, academia, business, technical, security, and end-user groups.

The Fellowship Program aims to select individuals who have a keen interest or already engaged in various aspects of Internet Governance within the West African region. WASIG’s primary objective is to build the capacity of West African stakeholders on Internet Governance (IG) issues, particularly on emerging issues in West Africa. The program will enhance the awareness of participants on Internet Governance, ensuring that they are well-equipped to contribute at the national, regional, continental and global levels of the IG process
