The first edition, the FITS program 2021-2022, will offer eight law students an opportunity to work on a research project with leading Indian think-tanks, who will also extend mentorship support to the students. It will be open to 4th and 5th-year students from the National Law School of India University, Bengaluru, the WB National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata, the National Law University, Delhi, and the National Law University, Jodhpur.

“With rapid advancements in technology and the evolution of technology law and policy in India, the programme is designed to encourage students to develop an independent voice on pressing topics that will have a bearing on future policy discussions in this area,” the social networking giant said in a statement.
