      DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL MONDAY, 5 JANUARY.
      
      Dear Colleagues,
      
      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)
      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 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 :
      
      	http://www.isoc.org/educpillar/fellowship
      
      Fellowship applications for both IETF meetings are due by 5 January
      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. Thirty six
      individuals from 25 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.
      
      If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Connie Kendig
      <kendig at isoc dot org> or Mirjam Kuehne <mir at isoc dot org>.
      
      Kind Regards,
      Connie J Kendig
