> The mission of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is “to prevent business practices that are anticompetitive 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.” The Technology and Governance Research Fellowship Program is a 10-week program designed to give students hands on experience with work relevant to the FTC by assisting with real-work exploratory projects. Additionally, the FTC seeks to use this program to broaden its ability to understand and respond to current topics in technology.
