Google Policy Fellow
TechFreedom is proud to participate in the Google Policy Fellowship program, and is currently seeking a Policy Fellow for Summer 2014. We will look to the Fellow to assist staff with research and writing quick-hit pieces like op-eds and blog posts. The Google Policy Fellow will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of technology-related policy issues, such as privacy, data security, FCC reform, Internet regulation, and free speech.
See Google’s description of the fellowship below, and visit the program’s site for more details and how to apply (applications are due 4/14!).
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 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 analyses; attending government and industry meetings and conferences; and participating in other advocacy activities.
