 Google Fiber and the Nonprofit Technology Network are trying to  help more people get online. The groups launched the Digital Inclusion Fellowship Thursday to get the more than 60 million Americans not using the Internet plugged into online resources

 

The fellowship will pair 16 people with local community organizations in Google Fiber’s eight locations, including the Triangle. At these spots, people will spend a year building a digital program that gets more people connected to the web. The initiative is a step toward addressing concerns of whether Google Fiber will be available to diverse communities or people with lower incomes.

Google Fiber is accepting applications for the first-ever fellowship through June 10, apply here.
