The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is proud to announce its participation in the 2013 Google Policy Fellowship program. Through this program, NHMC will be hiring a law student intern to join its team in the summer of 2013.

 

Applications for the 2013 Google Policy Fellowship are now open through March 15, 2013. Fellows will receive a stipend of $7,500 for 10 weeks during the summer of 2013 (June-August). Exact dates of the fellowship will be worked out by the fellow and host organization.

In 2011 NHMC’s top priority is to eliminate the harms induced by hate speech in media. Its other key projects include diversification of media ownership, low power FM, ensuring that broadcasters fulfill their duties to serve the public interest, universal broadband, network neutrality and performance rights.

The Google Policy Fellow will work closely with NHMC’s DC-based Vice President of Policy and Legal Affairs and its Policy Counsel, to advance NHMC’s agenda. The Fellow will work on complex legal and policy issues, and may be called upon to draft FCC pleadings, internal memoranda, press releases, blog posts, editorials and other documents as needed. The Fellow will be invited to attend meetings with decision makers at the FCC and in Congress, as well as meetings with media reform and civil rights activists. Please note that NHMC will only consider candidates enrolled in a law degree program. The Google Policy Fellow at NHMC will be supervised by an attorney.

The Google Policy Fellowship program was inspired by Google’s Summer of Code with a public policy twist. The Google Policy Fellowship program offers undergraduate, graduate, and law students interested in Internet and technology policy the opportunity to spend the summer contributing to the public dialogue on these issues, and exploring future academic and professional interests.

Fellows will have the opportunity to work at public interest organizations at the forefront of debates on broadband and access policy, content regulation, copyright and trademark reform, consumer privacy, open government, and more. More information about the host organizations and the areas of focus for the fellows are outlined here.
