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 2009 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

Successful applicants will be provided with transportation to and from
the NANOG/ARIN joint meeting in autumn, and a reasonable (local host
standard) allowance for food and accommodation. In addition, all fees
for participation in the conferences, tutorials, and social events will
be waived. The final grant size is determined according to final costs
and available funding. Successful applicants 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 1 June 2009, and the awardees will be
informed by 3 July 2009.
