IETF 98 Fellowship Applications are Open

By Megan KruseFormer Director, Advocacy and Communications

As you’ve seen in our daily posts about the IETF, there are always lots of activities around the topics we care about – IPv6, DNSSEC, TLS, Routing Security, and more. Interested in attending an IETF Meeting yourself? Applications are now open for the Internet Society Fellowship to the IETF!

From the announcement:

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 98, March 26-31, 2017, Chicago, United States

Information about the programme and links to apply can be found at:

Applications will close on 4 December 2016 and successful candidates will be notified on 16 December 2016.

This is a great opportunity for you to attend a meeting and get involved in the IETF. The Fellowship program provides a structured program with built-in mentors to help guide your path through your first meeting. (There are opportunities for returning Fellows, too!) Apply today, and join us in Chicago!
