Friends and Colleagues,


I would like to bring to your attention the "Google Policy Fellowship" at



We are now accepting applications for 2014 Fellowship in Asia and Europe. We
are no longer accepting applications for the 2014 fellowship in North
America and Latin America.


"The Google Policy Fellowship allowed me to explore my interests and
exercise my studies while working directly with dynamic leaders shaping the
policy space. The programming offered by Google not only informed me of the
major debates in technology policy, it also exposed me to a phenomenal
network of host organizations in Washington and around the globe. I
encourage you to seize this opportunity, and build your insight, experience,
and network."
-Marco De Leon (USHCC)

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

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
