Fellowship Program Scope and Goals
This program is designed to support IXPs, who cannot afford all the expenses to attend a Euro-IX forum or to pay for membership. All Euro-IX forums will run a Fellowship Program, as long as there is sufficient funding available.
Resources needed to fulfill the goals will come from sponosrships to the Fellowship and will be managed by Euro-IX.
Request for participation in the program
Any IXP interested in applying for the fellowship should complete the Fellowship Program Funding Request Form and send it to the Euro-IX Secretariat at least 4 weeks before the forum.
Participating in the Fellowship Program
If you're an IXP wanting to engage with other IXPs and industry experts, but don't have the resources, apply for a Euro-IX Fellowship!
The Fellowship gives two nights accomodation and attendance tickets for one Euro-IX forum in the year.
In addition, as a fellow you will receive one years remote membership, which gives you access to the mailing lists, working groups and the forum.
Any IXP who was the beneficiary of a fellowship program is expected to maintain its membership for at least one full calendar year following its fellowship grant.
Any IXP who was the beneficiary of a fellowship program may only apply again after a two-year interval.
Any Euro-IX member may apply for the fellowship only once for every calendar year.
Applicants may also apply for the Mentor-IX program at the same time.
Call for donations
The secretariat will make the Donation Application available to members and to other organisations at least 2 months before each Euro-IX forum.
The Euro-IX Secretariat, will maintain a Yearly Funding List stating detailed information about members who were granted a fellowship, the amount of the funds distributed to those members along with the reasons for selection of those members.
The Euro-IX secretariat will keep a record of all donations and fellowship applicants.
