LACNIC, will be offering a limited number of financial grants to members of the Internet community of Latin America and the Caribbean interested in attending its meeting LACNIC CARIBBEAN 3, that will be held in Paramaribo, Surinam, from July 13 to 15, 2011, at the Hotel Torarica.
People selected to receive the financial assistance will obtain one of the following benefits:
The amount of the financial assistance will be studied and considered on a case by case basis. Only in exceptional cases duly justified, candidates will benefit from more than one of the options of financial assistance.
The resources available are limited, so grants are not guaranteed for all applicants, or full assistance in any case. Approval will be directly communicated to the selected applicants.
It will be valued (although it is not an excluding condition) that the applicant is a member of the community with residency in countries within the LACNIC´s service region.
A list of the countries included in LACNIC´s service region is available at: http://lacnic.net/en/sobre-lacnic/cobertura
The selection committee has the right to select the candidates more suitable to receive the financial grants - following the above mentioned criteria- without any obligation to justify the results of the selection.
Beneficiaries of the financial assistance must attend all the sessions of the meetings.
