Over the time, different organizations have contributed towards
the SANOG fellowship program. We thank Computer Association of
Nepal (SANOG I) World Bank infoDev (SANOG II) and Internet Society
(SANOG III, IV). SANOG III onwards all fellowship have been made
possible with the grant from Internet Society (ISOC) and support
from Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC).
Since it's first meeting in January, 2003, SANOG has incorporated
a Fellowship Program to provide opportunities to participate in
SANOG. This program aims to provide basic assistance to successful
fellows to cover partial transportation and local living expenses
associated with attending the conference.
The SANOG Fellowship Program targets personnel from South Asian
countries who are actively involved in Internet development, in
any of the following roles:
- Decision Makers in government, educational, non-government
and private sectors
- Educators and trainers
Award Package differs according to sponsorship and support received
for the fellowship Program. At minimum, successful applicants
will be provided with a reasonable (local host standard) accommodation.
Whereever funds provide, partial
costs towards transportation to the venue, through the direct
route possible, and not exceeding USD 550 or equivalent is provided.
The final grant size is determined according to final costs and
available funding, and is advised to successful applicants. It
should be noted that other expenses are not funded by the Fellowship
Program and are the responsibility of the successful fellow.
