NetHui 2014 fellowships launched


NetHui 2014 fellowships launched

For the first time in NetHui history, InternetNZ and Catalyst are pleased to announce that applications are now open for fellowships to attend NetHui 2014 at Sky City, Auckland, July 9-11.

There are two fellowship programmes on offer. A general fellowship, and a Catalyst women under 25 fellowship.

For the general fellowship, InternetNZ will provide travel and accommodation assistance as well as an entry ticket for people who live in New Zealand to attend. Fellowship funding is limited to $6,500. No one recipient can claim more than $500.

The Catalyst women under 25 fellowship is available to women only, 25 years old and under. This fellowship has funding limited to $3,500 and again no one recipient can claim more than $500.

Applications are open today and close on June 23. On June 27 a decision will be annoucned on who the recipients will be.

InternetNZ's Andrew Cushen was excited about the new fellowships.

"It's really exciting to be able to help people get to NetHui who might otherwise have missed out. NetHui is New Zealand's premier collaborative Internet event. Every year over 500 people attend to help discuss and shape the future of the Internet in New Zealand. It's also wonderful to have Catalyst on-board to help get more people to NetHui. We welcome their support and it's exciting to work alongside them on such a great event."

"There's a question form on the NetHui website for people to fill out and then a panel of judges will asses those responses before making their decision. Having the fellowships means that we can ensure that we get a diverse representation of New Zealand's Internet community attending," said Mr Cushen.

The programme is also having a soft launch with the announcement of several of the keynotes and panels.

"Having the Deputy Prime Minister return to open NetHui is a sign of how important this event is to the fabric of New Zealand. Minister Adams will also be talking and Privacy Commissioner John Edwards will be doing the national keynote. We're also lining up a panel of experts from New Zealand and the world to talk about the future of the Internet over the next 25 years.
