The Internet policy world is ripe with fascinating issues. From cybercrime to government surveillance and security, to public procurement, trade and open access to information, there has never been a more exciting time to get involved.

We’re excited to launch the 6th summer of the Google Policy Fellowship, including, for the first time, opportunities to work with organizations from Africa and Europe, in addition to ones in Latin America, U.S. and Canada. Applications are open today, and students of all levels and disciplines are welcome to apply before March 15, 2013.

Fellows will spend ten weeks this summer working on a broad portfolio of topics at a diverse set of organizations in Europe and Africa, including:

ILab Africa
Kofi Annan Centre for Excellence in IT

ECIPE (European Centre for International Political Economy)
OpenForum Europe
The Lisbon Council

The full list of internships, including ones in the U.S., Canada and Latin America, is found here. Additional details about the program and application process are available on the Google Public Policy Fellowship website.
