Anjney Midha, Public Policy '15, named Google Policy Fellow
Two Stanford students, ANDREW BLANCO and ANJNEY MIDHA, have been chosen as 2012 Google Policy Fellows. The program gives undergraduate and graduate students interested in Internet and technology policy the opportunity to work in public interest organizations at the forefront of debates on broadband and access issues, content regulation, copyright and trademark reform, consumer privacy and open government. Fellows work directly with senior staff members of a host organization. Only 15 fellows were selected from among more than 1,300 submissions.
Midha, a freshman majoring in economics and in public policy, will be working with the Technology Policy Institute, a think tank that specializes in the economics of innovation, technological change and related regulation, domestically and internationally.
Blanco, a graduate student in management science and engineering, will be working at Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creative content by offering free, easy-to-use copyright licenses.
