Google is now accepting applications for the Google Fellowships (Internet Policy) in Africa, Europe, Latin America and North America.
The Google Policy Fellowship program was inspired by Google’s Summer of Code with a public policy twist.
The Google Policy Fellowship program offers undergraduate, graduate, and law students interested in Internet and technology policy the opportunity to spend the summer contributing to the public dialogue on these issues, and exploring future academic and professional interests.
Fellows will have the opportunity to work at public interest organizations at the forefront of debates on broadband and access policy, content regulation, copyright and trademark reform, consumer privacy, open government, and more.
Fellows will be assigned a lead mentor at their host organizations, but will have the opportunity to work with several senior staff members over the course of the summer.
Fellows will be expected to make substantive contributions to the work of their organization, including conducting policy research and analysis;
drafting reports and analyses; attending government and industry meetings and conferences; and participating in other advocacy activities.
