Google Policy Summer Institute 2023

The Google Policy Summer Institute (PSI) is a Google policy programme exclusively open to European policy school students from the CIVICA network – an alliance of ten leading European higher education institutions in the social sciences.

It offers a unique in-house and policy consultancy experience where first-generation college students will be invited to spend the first week of the programme at a Google office in Europe - London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, The Hague and Warsaw, which will be followed by a summer internship, for up to 8 weeks between June and July, with one of our renowned partner consultancies across Europe.

The key objective of the programme is to boost the government affairs and public policy career of first-generation college students, who traditionally do not benefit from a wide range of networking by expanding opportunities and removing barriers for underrepresented talent in the government affairs industry.

This is not a Google internship. Google will fund the Policy Summer Institute and assist students with relocation benefits to those accepted to the program in a country other than the one in which their University is based.
