The North American Network Operator’s Group (NANOG) is now accepting applications for two fellowships offered for NANOG 60. NANOG 60 will take place in Atlanta on February 10-12, 2014. The application process is open through Jan. 13, 2014.
NANOG offers two Fellowship options: the Abha Ahuja and Operator of Tomorrow. The Abha Ahuja Fellowship provides financial support for one female individual (awardee) who is a high school graduate, or currently enrolled student in courses leading to a baccalaureate or graduate degree at a college or university, or recently graduated student in North America to attend one NANOG meeting. The Operator of Tomorrow Fellowship aims to broaden the NANOG educational outreach in the community and bring new ideas into the public discussions by awarding a high school graduate, or currently enrolled student in courses leading to a baccalaureate or graduate degree at a college or university, or recently graduated student in North America to attend one NANOG meeting. Priority will be given to applicants who will be attending their first NANOG meeting.

Applicants must present a case for attending a NANOG meeting that includes what they intend to accomplish or get out of attending a meeting; how attending a meeting will help them in their work or study; and how they intend to apply their NANOG experience when they return home.
