This summer promises to be an exciting time to work on Internet and technology policy issues, and we can’t wait to see how our impressive 2009 Google Policy Fellowship class helps shape the debate. The students this year are bloggers, engineers, lawyers, journalists, activists, and web-entrepreneurs representing 14 universities in three countries.

Our host organizations selected the 14 fellows from a stunning applicant pool of over 600 students – that’s twice as many applications as last year. If last summer’s experience is any indication, the fellows will be out there blogging, meeting with policymakers, publishing papers, and much more. Be sure to look out for their work this summer on the host organizations’ websites. Here’s the full list of students and the host organizations where they’ll be working this summer:
