[NANOG-announce] 2014 Postel Scholarship Announcment


On behalf of the North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) and the
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), I would like to take this
opportunity to draw your attention to the 2014 Postel Network Operator's

The Postel Network Operator's Scholarship targets personnel from developing
countries who are actively involved in Internet development, in any of the
following roles:

Engineers (Network Builders)
Operational and Infrastructure Support Personnel
Educators and Trainers

This is not a postgraduate fellowship or academic scholarship.

Individuals may nominate themselves for the Scholarship via email or the
online form. 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 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 6-8, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland
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 July 4, 2014, and the awardees will be informed
by July 21, 2014.
