Applications Open for Google Policy Fellowship 2014 at Strathmore Law’s CIPIT

google policy fellowship

CIPIT has been selected (for the second year running) to host a Google Policy Fellow. The list of host institutions is quite a who’s-who of tech research institutes. In Sub-Saharan Africa, CIPIT is Kenya’s only host organisation with other hosts in South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana.

This first Google Policy Fellow to be hosted at CIPIT in 2013 was Mr. Rene Eno-Akpa, a student in Department of Public Policy at the Central European University whose research aimed at “helping rural and less fortunate Africans access copyright-protected materials and thus build a capacity for a better life”.
