Welcome Summer 2016 Interns!

May 23, 2016

We're pleased to announce the Public Knowledge Interns for Summer 2016. Each year we select talented students from around the country to join us for the summer and experience public policy processes and public interest advocacy in Washington, D.C. Interns have opportunities to attend Congressional hearings and panel events, contribute to legal filings and white papers, participate in outreach efforts and Capitol Hill visits, and much more. This year's class of interns has a range of interests, including cybersecurity, internet governance, communications for emergency services, and copyright reform. Learn more about our Summer 2016 interns below.
