Are you a student who is passionate about protecting citizens' civil liberties and the free and open Internet? Do you love debating technology law and Internet policy issues? Then consider applying for a Google Policy Fellowship to work with EFF's international policy team next summer! Now in its fourth year, the Google Policy Fellowship program offers successful applicants the opportunity to work with one of 17 host organizations at the forefront of Internet and technology public policy —including EFF.
Google Policy Fellows work to advance debate on key policy issues affecting the public for a minimum of 10 weeks in June - August 2011. Google kindly offers a $7500 stipend to the selected fellows. Google is now accepting applications at its GPF application page before January 17, 2011. Applicants will then be reviewed by host organizations and the successful applicant for each organization will be informed by Google by February 28, 2011. EFF is looking for a fellow with a global perspective, who has substantial knowledge about the international issues in which we are involved. More information about the focus of the work our Google Policy Fellow will take on are available here. More information about the GPF program is available in the FAQ.
US law students who are interested in working with EFF's litigation team over the summer should apply to EFF's separate legal internship program. Details of that program are available on our internship page.
