Fellowship to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
The Internet Society is inviting applications for its Fellowship to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The Fellowship programme allows technologists, engineers, and researchers from emerging and developing economies to attend 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 applications for the following:

Applications will close on 2 April 2017 and successful candidates will be notified on 21 April 2017.
We encourage you to apply for this opportunity or pass this information about the programme to individuals in your network that have a keen interest in the open standards development activities of the IETF.
