The MANRS (Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security) Ambassador Program 2021 is now accepting applications. If you are an industry leader eager to improve the well-being of the Internet’s global routing system, apply now.
Ambassadors are representatives from MANRS participant organizations who show expertise and leadership in the routing security community. They are well-respected professionals committed to helping make the global routing infrastructure more robust and secure.

Ambassadors will work with MANRS Fellows (participants in an associated program that will invite applications next month) and together, they will train diverse communities on good routing practices, analyze routing incidents, research into ways to secure routing, and survey the global policy landscape. You can read about the four Ambassadors in last year’s inaugural program, which proved highly popular.
The Internet Society supports this program as part of its work to reduce common routing threats and establish norms for network operations. You can apply to be a MANRS Ambassador in three different areas: training, research, and policy. Each Ambassador will receive a stipend of USD 1,500 a month. The program will start in mid-April and run for up to eight months. You can apply for more than one category but will only be selected for one of them.
The deadline for Ambassador applications is Friday, 19 February 2021.
If you have any questions about this program or the application process, send an email to manrs-fellows [at] isoc [dot] org.
