      [Sent to multiple lists; apologies for the duplicates]
      
      On behalf of the North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) and the
      American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), I would like to take this
      opportunity to draw your attention to the 2011 Postel Network Operator's
      Scholarship.
      
      The Postel Network Operator's Scholarship targets personnel from
      developing countries who are actively involved in Internet development,
      in any of the following roles:
      
      *	Engineers (Network Builders)
      *	Operational and Infrastructure Support Personnel
      *	Educators and Trainers
      
      This is not a postgraduate fellowship or academic scholarship.
      
      Individuals may nominate themselves for the Scholarship via email or 
      online form. The Scholarship will be awarded annually to a recipient 
      selected by a committee comprising representatives from the NANOG 
      Board of Directors and the ARIN Board of Trustees. The selection 
      committee will "whimsically" select the annual recipient exclusively in 
      response to the question: "What Would Jon Do?" if he were asked to 
      select a recipient. 
      
      The successful applicant will be provided with transportation to and from
      the NANOG and ARIN joint meeting 9-15 October 2011, in Philadelphia, 
      Pennsylvania, USA, and a reasonable (local host
      standard) allowance for food and accommodation. In addition, all fees
      for participation in both meetings' events will
      be waived. The final grant size is determined according to final costs
      and available funding.  The chosen recipient will be advised at least 2
      months prior to the fall meeting date.
      
      Applications from qualified individuals are now being accepted.  The
      deadline for application is 1 June 2011, and the awardees will be
      informed by 3 July 2011.
      
      Please read full information about the scholarship at:

      To apply, please complete the web-based application form that is linked 
      from that page. Optionally, you may submit your application in PLAIN 
      ASCII in the BODY of the message, not as an attachment nor as a Word 
      document, PDF, or any other form, to PostelNOS@nanog.org. 
      
      Please be sure to include the following: 
      
      * Full name and contact info 
      * Your brief biography, including current and recent jobs held
      * A description of why you need and deserve this Scholarship to
        attend the NANOG and ARIN meetings
      * A description of how you plan to leverage your attendance at
        the meetings in your work
      * A brief abstract of a presentation you would give at the NANOG
        and/or ARIN meetings, if selected as a Scholarship winner
      
      Kind regards,
      
      -Rob Seastrom, on behalf of the Postel Scholarship Selection Committee
