[Washington, D.C. and Geneva, Switzerland]— The Internet Society today announced that it has awarded new and returning fellowships to eleven highly-skilled engineers to attend the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting held 29 July – 3 August in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The Internet Society awards fellowships to enable technologists from developing countries to participate in the IETF meetings. First-time fellows are paired with an experienced mentor and are given the opportunity to make a positive contribution to IETF work. The IETF, the Internet’s premier standards-making body, represents 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.

“The Internet Society has a long-standing commitment to encourage and support next–generation technical leaders from around the globe,” said Toral Cowieson, Senior Director of Internet Leadership at the Internet Society. “This round of IETF Fellowships garnered more than 250 impressive applications from 65 countries. We are excited to help accelerate the careers of these professionals and to provide an opportunity for them to participate in and contribute to the important work of the IETF.”
