      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
      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 :
      
      	http://www.isoc.org/educpillar/fellowship
      
      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.
      
      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
