Introducing the Google Policy Fellowship

As lawmakers around the world become more engaged on Internet policy, 
ensuring a robust and intelligent public debate around these issues 
becomes increasingly important. That's why we're announcing our second 
summer for the Google Policy Fellowship Program-to support students 
and organizations working on policy issues fundamental to the future 
of the Internet and its users.

Program Overview

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. Participating organizations are 
based in either Washington, DC, San Francisco, CA , Ottawa or Toronto, 
Canada and include: American Library Association, Cato Institute, 
Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, Center for 
Democracy and Technology, Citizen Lab, Competitive Enterprise 
Institute, Creative Commons, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Future of 
Music Coalition, Internet Education Foundation, Media Access Project, 
New America Foundation, Progress and Freedom Foundation, Public 
Knowledge, and Technology Policy Institute. More information about the 
host organizations and the areas of focus for the fellows are outlined 

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.
