This is not a postgraduate fellowship or academic scholarship.
Individuals may nominate themselves for the Scholarship via email. 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<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Postel>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 October 7-11, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona,
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 June 7, 2013 and the awardees will be informed
by July 19, 2013.
