[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

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.

from that page. Optionally, you may submit your application in PLAIN

document, PDF, or any other form, to PostelNOS at nanog.org. 

Please be sure to include the following: 

* Full name and contact info

Kind regards,

-Rob Seastrom, on behalf of the Postel Scholarship Selection Committee
