Forwarded on behalf of ISOC.
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 Future Internet Leaders program (www.isoc.org/leaders). The 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 76 being held in Hiroshima, Japan, 8-13 November 2009 * IETF 77 being held in Anaheim, USA, 21-26 March 2010
Up to six 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 July 2009.
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. Forty seven individuals from 29 countries have participated in the program since its inception.
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.
Kind Regards, Connie J Kendig ISOC
