- Assez réducteur... the success of the program = participated in any 
discussion on any ICANN list or public comment forum.  How we talking/thinking 
about the same  "discussion" here on this list ?  

Pour votre information :

Who may apply for and be awarded a fellowship?...

Successful applicants will
  have demonstrated:
    Ability to utilize the experiences gained from the fellowship
      to become a part of the next generation of ICANN leadershipA role or
        interest in the Internet spaceAn interest in contributing to:
    ICANN policy development processes.The ICANN fellowship alumni network.A 
leadership role in stimulating
        local interest in ICANN.An ICANN supporting organization or advisory

Congratulations for your deep interest in the ICANN policy development 
processes but it's just one of the objectives of the program as you can see it.

- Just google the name of the feelows and you will see that folks are working 
hard in their respective country to manage critical Internet Infrastructure for 
their local Internet community and for the whole Internet space which is one of 
the core objectives of the program .

> then why is this program being carried forward ...

- I'd kindly suggest you to read again the objectives of the program... My 
understanding is that "policy development processes" is not the kernel of this

- It'll be more and more difficult to obtain funding... mais je vous souhaite 
bonne chance ça va être très dure :-)
