Dear ISOC Members,

I am posting this announcement on behalf of Karen Rose, Director of
Education.  Any questions should be directed to Karen <rose at isoc.org>.

Best wishes,


The Internet Society has announced that it is seeking applications
for the next round of the ISOC Fellowship to the IETF  program. The
program offers engineers from developing countries fellowships that
fund the cost of attending an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)

As you know, the IETF is the Internet's premier standards-making
body, responsible for the development of protocols used in IP-based
networks. IETF participants represent an international community of
network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers involved in
the technical operation of the Internet and the continuing evolution
of Internet architecture.

Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive application
process. The Internet Society is currently accepting fellowship
applications for the next two IETF meetings:

    * IETF 70 being held in Vancouver, Canada on December 2-7 2007, and
    * IETF 71 being held in Philadelphia, USA on March 9-14, 2008

Up to five fellowships will be awarded for each IETF meeting.

Full details on the ISOC Fellowship to the IETF,  including how to
apply, are located on the ISOC website at :


Fellowship applications for both IETF meetings are due by 7 September

The Internet Society formally launched the ISOC Fellowship to the
IETF program in January 2007 after successfully piloting the program
during 2006 at IETF 66 in Montreal and IETF 67 in San Diego. Fifteen
individuals from 12 countries have participated in the program since
its inception.
