The 2010 class of Google Policy Fellows



We began the Google Policy Fellowship 3 years ago to match students with advocacy organizations working on policy issues fundamental to the future of the Internet and its users. We’ve been impressed by incredible pool of talent the program has attracted. More than 500 students applied for this summer’s 17 available slots. The 2010 class of Google Policy Fellows come from 14 schools in 4 countries and are studying everything from law to library science to mathematics and biology.

For 10 weeks this summer, the Fellows will join organizations in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Toronto, and Ottawa to analyze policy and technology, meet with lawmakers, and build coalitions from partners and grassroots supporters on topics including national security, free expression, privacy, and much more.

Here's a complete list of the 2010 Google Policy Fellows and where they'll be this summer:
We've seen great work from the past Fellows in 2008 and 2009, and expect even more this year as the the 2010 class of Fellows sets out to contribute important technology policy issues of our time.

A big congratulations to this year’s fellows and a sincere thank you to everyone who applied. Stay tuned for updates on the 2010 Fellows, and check back here or at google.com/policyfellowship for more information on future programs.

Great news. When will you make information about about 2011 available? Is there a selection criteria?
