Note: All information above is self-reported by applicants.

The selected Fellows represent participants from various stakeholder groups, as shown in the list.
GhanaSIG aims to create an avenue for people from diverse sectors and backgrounds to acquire the requisite skills in Internet Governance to enable them to participate meaningfully to discourse at the community, national, regional and the international levels.

The hybrid fellowship programme is made up of one month online learning sessions and followed by a one week face-to-face training scheduled for June 2024.

GhanaSIG is a recognized registered member of the Dynamic Coalition on Internet Governance Schools, a worldwide body of Internet Governance Schools sharing best practices on Internet Governance.

GhanaSIG is an Internet Governance fellowship training event but not an academic programme.
Team EGIGFA congratulates the selected Fellows of the 2024 Ghana School on Internet Governance (GhanaSIG) for this achievement and wishes them an enjoyable fellowship.
