If you're a undergraduate, graduate, or law student interested in in the world of tech policy, or know someone who is, keep reading.

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Google Policy Fellowship program, our effort to replicate the success of our Summer of Code program in the public policy sphere and to support students and organizations doing work important to the future of Internet users everywhere.

Those selected as fellows will receive a stipend to spend ten weeks contributing to the public debate on technology policy issues -- ranging from broadband policy to copyright reform to open government. Participating organizations for our beta summer of 2008 include the 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, and Public Knowledge.

Check out more details and the application, which is due by January 1, 2008. And please help us spread the word!
