Apologies for the wide posting but I feel like these lists have the kind of
people we're looking for! Feel free to forward on if there are other
communities that could be interested.

The ICTD Research Group at the University of Washington’s Allen School of
Computer Science and Engineering (http://ictd.cs.washington.edu/) is
seeking qualified students, both from the US and abroad, with an interest
in universal internet access and community networking to apply to the PhD
program in computer networking. The ICTD group, led by Professors Kurtis
Heimerl and Richard Anderson, has long worked on the problems of Universal
Internet Access internationally, with deployments and projects in both the
rural Philippines (in partnership with the University of the Philippines)
and Indonesia (in partnership with Ob Anggen). As our research shifts to
wide-area LTE networks and the infrastructure of repair, we want to find
more motivated and passionate students with interest and capacity in the
space. There is a particular interest in students with personal experience
with hard connectivity problems.

If interested, please visit the UWCSE admissions page (
https://www.cs.washington.edu/academics/phd). All students admitted to the
Allen School Ph.D. program are guaranteed funding for 3 years in the form
of a research assistantship, teaching assistantship or fellowship. All or
most of the cost of tuition is covered by the assistantship or fellowship.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Professor Kurtis Heimerl <
