Congratulations to the Internet Society Fellows to IETF 92 in Dallas, TX (US)

By Toral CowiesonFormer Head, Strategy & Impact Measurement

Please join me in congratulating the most recent cohort of Internet Society Fellows to IETF. These 14 technologists from academia, business, and civil society were selected from more than 120 highly qualified applicants.

As the next billions come online, they will be from countries like Brazil, India, Pakistan, and Ukraine. The Internet Society and its partners’ ongoing commitment to this programme ensures that individuals from these regions have an informed voice and a seat in the room where standards development takes place.  As importantly, each individual selected has to demonstrate how they will take their experiences at IETF back to their communities to amplify the work of the Internet Society.

Previous Fellows have authored RFCs, mentored students, spoken in their communities to increase awareness of IETF and the importance of Open Standards, and deployed IETF standards in their companies and communities.

We look forward to seeing what this group will accomplish in the coming years and months.  You can learn more about them on the IETF 92 Fellows page.

In the meantime, many thanks to our partners in the programme: Afilias, Comcast/Universal, Google, Microsoft, and Verisign.

NOTE: If you are interested in being considered for a fellowship for IETF 93 in Prague in July 2015, please visit our IETF Fellowship page.   The process for applications is open now and the deadline to apply is April 5, 2015.
