By Megan KruseFormer Director, Advocacy and Communications

Were you following along with either the Internet Society Rough Guide to the IETF, or the Deploy360 daily blog posts from IETF 96 in Berlin? Are you curious about the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)? Do you want to get more involved and learn more about how Internet standards and protocols are developed?

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:

* IETF 97, November 13-18, 2016, Seoul, South Korea

Information about the programme and links to apply can be found here.

Applications will close on 31 July 2016, and successful candidates will be notified on 19 August 2016.

We hope you will consider applying and joining us in Seoul in November!
