Google Fiber announced Wednesday that it is extending a fellowship program to broaden Internet use to more people.

It will sponsor 22 fellowships in the second year, including two at Kansas City institutions.

Last year the program placed fellows with Literacy Kansas City and the Full Employment Council. The literacy group will get a fellow for a second year. Instead of the employment organization, Google will place a fellow with the Kansas City Public Library.

The company is also offering 20 fellowships in other markets where it sells Internet service.

Applications for the one-year Digital Inclusion Fellowship hosted by the Nonprofit Technology Network are being accepted until May 13.
