Save the world

The Federal Trade Commission is launching a new program, Summer Research Fellowships in Technology and Data Governance. Spend your summer exploring ways to design, create, assess, and analyze technology at its intersection with business, society and policy. This 10-week program gives students hands on experience with work relevant to the FTC by assisting the FTC's Chief Technologist and others with real-work exploratory projects of interest to the FTC. Additionally, the FTC seeks to use this program to broaden its ability to understand and respond to current topics in technology.

The mission of the FTC is to prevent business practices that are anti-competitive or deceptive or unfair to consumers; to enhance informed consumer choice and public understanding of the competitive process; and to accomplish this without unduly burdening legitimate business activity.
