Apply for a summer 2010 Google Policy Fellowship

Internet policy wonks are different. When the weather gets colder and most people think about planning their July beach vacation, we think about what's going to be on July's docket at the FCC, or what tech legislation will be moving through Congress. Good news is, we're not the only ones.

Every year Google helps place aspiring Internet policy thought leaders with organizations that are leading the debate on big ideas like spreading broadband access, protecting free speech, closing the digital divide, and keeping users safe online.

If you're in college or grad school and you're like us, you won't want to miss the chance to become a summer 2010 Google Policy Fellow.

Fellows spend ten weeks working on policy issues critical to the future of the Internet and its users at one of our outstanding host organizations, including: American Library Association, Cato Institute, Center for Democracy and Technology, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Internet Education Foundation, Media Access Project, New America Foundation, Public Knowledge, Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, The Citizen Lab, Creative Commons, Future of Music Coalition, Progress and Freedom Foundation, Technology Policy Institute. We're also thrilled to welcome for 2010: The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies and National Hispanic Media Coalition.

You can take a look at some of the great work these groups have planned for this summer and learn more about the program at our website.

We can't wait to hear from you, so get going on your application, which is due Monday, December 28.
