The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is the world’s premier open Internet standards-development body. The Internet Society Fellowship to the IETF is available to technology professionals, advanced IT students, and other qualified individuals from developing and emerging economies.

Fellows to the IETF attend an IETF meeting where they are paired with an experienced mentor and are expected to make a positive contribution to IETF work.

The Fellowship to the IETF helps to increase the diversity of inputs to, and global awareness of the IETF’s vital work. At the same time, the Fellows participate in the development of open Internet standards and best practices and make valuable connections with global peers with similar interests.
Fellowships are available to first-time and returning Fellows.

About the IETF

The IETF (along with its related organizations) is a large, open, international community of network designers, operators, vendor experts, researchers, and other interested technologists. While much of the IETF’s work takes place through mailing lists, there are three physical IETF meetings each year. The in-person experience of IETF meetings can help promote a stronger understanding of the standardization process, encourage active involvement in IETF work, and facilitate personal networking with others who have similar technical interests.
