    For over 10 years, Public Knowledge has made it our mission to train the next generation of tech policy advocates. Public Knowledge launched its fellowship training program, PKTrains, in 2014 with two Internet Rights Fellows funded by Media Democracy Fund/New Venture Fund.

    From 2015-2020, Public Knowledge hosted a new public interest legal policy fellowship program in conjunction with George Washington University Law School. We have continued to host fellows thanks to funding from other foundations and universities.

    With help from many gracious friends and supporters, Public Knowledge bolstered our mentorship program in 2022, creating a memorial fund and fellowship in memory of our former legal director, Sherwin Lee Siy. 

    We strive to promote diversity in the tech policy space through our fellowship program. About 70% of our PKTrains fellows have been female, 60% were people of color, and over 30% were from families where at least one parent was born outside the U.S. At least four identified as LGBTQ+.

    PK fellows have gone on to exciting careers in the tech policy field and beyond. Check out where our alumni are now.
