Subject: Announcing Sakai Fellows Program for 2009

The nominations for the Sakai Fellows Program for 2009 are now open.  The nomination form is attached, and as in the past, you can nominate others or self-nominate.  Please return completed forms to me, knoop at umich.edu, by Monday, 4 May 2009.

The purpose of the Sakai Foundation Fellows Program is to acknowledge, celebrate and reward the contributions of important Sakai volunteer contributors. The Sakai Fellows program seeks to foster community leadership and contribution through recognizing and supporting active contributors. Contributors bring varied expertise to the community, including architecture, design and development of technology, best practices in teaching, learning, research and collaboration, and coordination of community functions. The purpose of the Sakai Foundation Fellows Program is to enable outstanding Sakai volunteer contributors and/or evangelists to continue and extend their involvement in Sakai, by providing material resources to support their work. The Sakai Fellows program will recognize such contributions and support the efforts of the Fellows through a modest stipend. The contributions of the Fellows will be showcased across the boundaries of the current work/discussion group structures of Sakai, offering a way for the entire community to be introduced to areas of the project that they may not follow closely, and providing a view to the public of the peer leaders' endeavors within the Sakai community.

Highlights of the Sakai Fellows Program:

* Sakai Fellows are not permitted to reapply in the year after they serve.  (Sakai 2008 Fellows are ineligible for this year's competition, however, Sakai 2006/2007 Fellows are eligible.)
* There will be a total of 6 Sakai Fellow awards this year. 
* Terms will be 1 year and the stipend will be $2500; conference registration fees will also be waived. 
* The terms will start with the summer conference and go through the next summer's conference. 
* Nominations are due by Monday, 4 May 2009.
