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 Next Generation Leaders (NGL) programme ( The Fellowship 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 78, 25-30 July, Maastricht, Netherlands
   * IETF 79, 7-12 November, Beijing, China

Fellowship applications for both IETF meetings are due by 16 April 2010.

Two other components of the NGL are accepting applications:

Please note that each component has a different application deadline.

I encourage you to pass information about this programme to individuals involved in your network that have a keen interest in the Internet standardisation activities of the IETF and/or in Internet governance issues.

The Internet Society’s Next Generation Leaders programme is sponsored by Nominet Trust.

The Internet Society Fellowships to the IETF are also sponsored by Afilias, Google, Microsoft, and Intel.
