Apply for a Google Policy Fellowship

estimated reading time: 1 minute and 10 seconds.

Many years ago, I was a Google Policy Fellow. It’s an incredible experience, and I highly recommend it. Here’s an overview of the program from Google’s Policy Fellowship Website:

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 creativity, consumer privacy, open government, government surveillance, data security, data innovation, free expression and more. More information about the host organizations and the areas of focus for the fellows is outlined here.

Fellows will be assigned a lead mentor at their host organizations and 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 white papers, attending government and industry meetings and conferences, and participating in other advocacy activities.

The deadline is March 25th, so if you’re eligible and interested in technology policy issues, be sure to apply before then!
