Become a Google Policy Fellow and Work with EFF Next Summer

If you're a student or researcher who is passionate about improving technology policy and you're interested in working with EFF, consider applying for the Google Policy Fellowship — a 10-week, summer program that gives students the chance to work alongside a public interest organization on topics of Internet and technology policy.

Marcel Leonardi, last year's Google Policy Fellow at EFF, was a pleasure to work with and enjoyed his experience with us: "It was a complete privilege to work with such smart, passionate and fun people; to be able to participate in important debates with several organizations, and to do research with full academic freedom. I am proud of being a Google Policy Fellow."

Much like how Google's "Summer of Code" project aims to develop and promote open source projects, Google is hoping that these policy fellowships will advance debate on key policy issues affecting the public. Fellows will receive a stipend of $7,000 for 10 weeks during the summer of 2010 (June to August). Applications are due by midnight on Monday, December 28, 2009. Students who are accepted into the program will be notified by Friday, February 12th, 2010. For more information, read the FAQ, learn more about EFF's focus areas and check out the application.
