Dear Colleagues,


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.


Two other components of the NGL are accepting applications:


ISOC IGF Ambassadors <http://www.isoc.org/pubpolpillar/igfambassadors/>


NGL eLearning programme  <http://www.isoc.org/leaders/elearning.php>


To learn more about the NGL, and each of the three components, please

visit:  www.isoc.org/leaders  Please review each component separately,
including the different criteria, to help you decide which

component(s) are appropriate for your professional background and future


Please note that each component has a different application deadline.


I encourage you to pass information about this programme to individuals
involved in your network that have a keen interest in the Internet
standardisation activities of the IETF and/or in Internet governance issues.


The Internet Society's Next Generation Leaders programme is sponsored by
Nominet Trust.


The Internet Society Fellowships to the IETF are also sponsored by Afilias,
Google, Microsoft, and Intel.


If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Connie Kendig

Kind Regards,

Connie J Kendig
