In preparation for the 1982 ITU Plenipotentiary Conference in Nairobi, Ambassador Michael Gardner asked leaders of major, often competing, U.S. ICT corporations to join together with senior U.S. government officials to provide diverse tuition-free training for qualified communications professionals, regulators, and entrepreneurs from the developing world.

The USTTI's initial course offerings for 2018 are now available at USTTI.org, and we are accepting applications for our 36th year of tuition-free training.
The 2018 curriculum offers course innovations addressing the Internet Domain
Name System, Internet of Things and 5G Technology! The additions to the
USTTI's 2018 Curriculum will empower USTTI Scholars with the knowledge and
skills to expand their country's connectivity and unlock the full potential
of modern communications.
Importantly, USTTI courses in the areas of spectrum management,
communications policy and regulation, cybersecurity, competition policy,
satellite communications, broadband deployment and emergency communications
have been maintained and expanded.
The USTTI's tuition-free curriculum would not be possible without the
dedication of leaders and subject matter experts from government, industry
and academia in the United States. On an annual basis, these women and men
and their organizations generously volunteer their time, expertise and
resources for USTTI scholars from every corner of the developing world. The
USTTI would especially like to thank our Industry and Government Board

(FCC); Facebook; Ericsson; Google; GSMA; ICANN; Intel Corporation; Inmarsat,
Intelsat; The Internet Society (ISOC); The National Telecommunications and
Information Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce; Microsoft; The
Office of International Communications and Information Policy, U.S.
