On behalf of the North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) and the 
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), we would like to take 
this opportunity to draw your attention to the 2013 Postel Network 
Operator's Scholarship.

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. 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 7-11 October 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  7 June  2013 and the awardees will be 
informed by 19 July  2013.

Kind regards,

Steve Gibbard and John Curran, on behalf of the Postel Scholarship 
Selection Committee
