Apply for the Summer Google Policy Fellowship and Work with EFF

Students interested in technology law and policy may be interested in applying to work with EFF next summer through the Google Policy Fellowship, a program that gives students the chance to spend the summer working alongside host organizations on topics of Internet and technology policy.

Much like how the Summer of Code project aims to develop and promote open source projects, Google is hoping that policy fellowships will advance debate on key policy issues affecting the public. Google is kindly offering fellows a $7000 stipend (for a minimum of 10 weeks in June to August 2009) for working with host organizations like EFF on various topics.

Google's application deadline is December 12, 2008. Take a look at a list of EFF's focus areas and find application details here. Students who are accepted will be notified by Friday, February 13th.
