If you have an idea for a tech policy internship but need funding for it,
SIG can provide funding.  They want more engineers, so if you're interested
in tech policy stuff, this should be a good way to get funding for it.

*Hi Sam, *
*Could you pass along to any relevant CS lists? SIG is specifically
targeting technology and engineering students. *
*Got your own idea for how to engage with public service this summer, but
not sure how to fund it? Check out SIG's summer stipend program! The SIG
stipend program provides funding for unpaid public service internships that
you've already secured. *

The new Stanford in Government (SIG) Stipend program offers Stanford
students an unprecedented opportunity supporting unpaid summer internships
in the public policy domain, allowing students who would not pursue these
internships without the Stipends to take them. Stipends will provide public
policy exposure for:

   - Science, technology, and engineering students who may not be exposed
   to the policy implications of their academic interests and would not
   qualify for SIG, Haas Center or other fellowships based on previous
   - Students receiving financial aid from Stanford, who would otherwise
   forego an unpaid internship in public policy due to the need to earn money
   during the summer.

*What are the Stipends?*

SIG will offer up to ten (10) stipends in the summer of 2012. The stipends
will go to students who secure their own public policy internships – do it
yourself. The students awarded the stipends will receive a base stipend of
$4000 (plus financial aid support for a total of up to $6100) to cover
living costs and summer earnings expected under the terms of students’
financial aid packages. We hope to be meet the demand for

All potential applicants are encouraged to make use of SIG guidance and
resources here<>
order to find a summer internship.
