The Internet Society has announced that it is seeking applications for
the next round of the ISOC Fellowship to the IETF program, part of
its Next Generation Leaders (NGL) programme (www.isoc.org/leaders).
The Fellowship program offers engineers from developing countries
fellowships that fund the cost of attending an Internet Engineering
Task Force (IETF) meeting.
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 78, 25-30 July, Maastricht, Netherlands
* IETF 79, 7-12 November, Beijing, China
Fellowship applications for both IETF meetings are due by 16 April 2010.
