Today ISOC launched a new program aimed at helping technologists from
developing countries become more involved in the IETF by attending a
meeting in person. The program, called the ISOC Fellowship to the IETF,
sponsors the cost of attending (meeting fees, airfare, hotel
accommodation, and a small stipend) for up to five individuals per meeting.
The program is aimed at individuals from developing countries that
possess a solid level of technical education and enough knowledge about
concrete areas of IETF work to follow and benefit from the meeting's
technical discussions (and ideally they will have already been
participating in one or more IETF mailing lists.)
Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive application process.
ISOC currently is accepting fellowship applications for two IETF
meetings: IETF 68 being held in Prague, Czech Republic on 18 - 23
March and IETF 69 being held in Chicago, USA on 22 - 27 July.
Applications are due on 2 February 2007.
Full information on the program, including how apply, is located at
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 hesiate to contact Karen Rose
