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 (www.isoc.org/leaders). 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

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:

ISOC IGF Ambassadors <http://www.isoc.org/pubpolpillar/igfambassadors/>

NGL eLearning programme  <http://www.isoc.org/leaders/elearning.php>

To learn more about the NGL, and each of the three components, please
visit:  www.isoc.org/leaders  Please review each component separately,
including the different criteria, to help you decide which component(s)
are appropriate for your professional background and future goals.

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.
