This is great! Really great news. I talked with Erick about this and we
would like to share with you two matters.
First, we would like to know: what do you think about sharing this with
Mariano or Neyder? both from the Intranet project in Abasolo. I’m sure one
of them would love to go and participate in the IGF and a visa wouldn’t be
necessary, so there wouldn’t be any issues with the trip.
The second matter is that Erick was supposed to go to the IGF and at the
end, he wasn’t able to go, so he told me I should go instead of him. Sadly,
when we decided this it was too late and the trip was really expensive, so
we weren’t able to afford it. We already planned some activities for those
dates but we were wondering, now that this opportunity arises, if I should
apply for this fellowship in order to be present to discuss the Community
Networks in the Americas Region project we have going on. I would like to
know your opinion on this, if it’s possible. Do you believe it would be a
good option to apply?
Those are the questions, for now. Thank you very much for your time.

Hello Colleagues –
In coordination with ISOC’s 2018 planning and a key focus on community
networks, we are coming to you with a rapid call for CN fellowships. This
CN fellowship for IGF 2017 will support air travel and hotel costs only.
Key data points:
1. Send an email by 11 December at 1700 UTC to coffin(a)isoc.org and
buell(a)isoc.org indicating “why” as a community network manager, operator,
researcher, or enabler you would like a fellowship to the IGF 2017.
-You must have worked with, managed, created, researched, or enabled a
community network for more than one year. We consider community radio as
part of CNs.
-You must not have received an ISOC fellowship to the IGF in the past.
3. There will be a strong focus on women working with CNs, CNs in
Indigenous communities, CNs working with refugees, CNs working in disaster
and emergency response situations.
We know time is short, but we have an opportunity to help some folks get
to Geneva for IGF2017 and to introduce you around or have others do the
Please forward to folks you know.
