Privacy & Technology Fellows Program
Privacy and Technology Fellows Program Description
Georgetown Law and the Center on Privacy & Technology have partnered with non-profits, government agencies, and private industry to create Privacy & Technology Fellowships focusing on the intersection of privacy and technology in both policy and practice. The fellowships begin in early fall after graduation and last at least twelve months. During the fellowship, the fellow will work with two different hosts, gaining privacy experience across industries and sectors. Generally, the fellow will spend six months at a non-profit or government agency focused on privacy issues and six months at a for-profit company. The length of the fellowship may be extended, depending on the needs of the host organization or company and the availability of the fellow.
Georgetown Law awards graduates a monthly stipend during the public sector or non-profit portion of the fellowship. The for-profit company sponsors the fellow during the private sector segment.
Fellows are selected by the public and private sector entities involved.

Fellowship Application and Selection Process
The selection and placement process will take place in two parts, with offers for fall placements made by the end of April and offers for spring placements made in January (a more detailed outline is forthcoming). While the location of a fellow’s spring placement will not yet be determined at the beginning of the fellowship, funding for the entire year is guaranteed.
