TWO WEEKS LEFT. Deadline is 31 December 2008.
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 74 being held in San Francisco, USA, 22 - 27 March 2009
* IETF 75 being held in Stockholm, Sweden, 26 -31 July 2009
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 31 December 2008.
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. Thirty six
individuals from 25 countries have participated in the program since
I encourage you to pass information about this program to individuals
involved in your regional operators' groups that have a keen interest
in the Internet standardisation activities of the IETF. You also may
consider being a reference for the applicant.
