Very cool news from ARIN today (via the ARIN-Announce list):
ARIN is pleased to announce a new Meetings Fellowship Program in an
effort to broaden educational outreach and bring new ideas into the
public policy discussions. The program provides financial support for
one individual from each of the three sectors within ARIN’s service area
(Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the United States
and Outlying Areas) to attend each Public Policy and Members Meeting.
Members of the ARIN Advisory Council will be invited to serve as Mentors
for the ARIN Meeting Fellows to advise them and help provide a smooth
transition into the ARIN community. Individuals selected for the
fellowship will receive the following benefits:
• Free meeting registration
• Round-trip economy class airfare to the meeting, booked directly by ARIN
• Hotel accommodations at the venue hotel, booked directly by ARIN
• A small stipend to cover meals and incidental travel expenses.
We are now issuing a call for Fellows to attend ARIN XXIII in San
Antonio, Texas. If you are interested in applying for the program, you
have until 12 February, 2009 to submit an application. The application,
submission instructions, and a detailed description of the program can
be found at:
Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions concerning the
program and the application process.
