White House looks for new class of innovation fellows
Calling all geniuses.
The White House announced today it’s now accepting applications for the third round of the Presidential Innovation Fellow program. Encouraged to apply are “original thinkers, gifted designers, tech-savvy strategists, private-sector doers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and talented developers and engineers” to participate in the flagship program that brings private sector talent into government for limited-time fellowships.
Still on the fence? Deputy U.S. Chief Technology Officer Jennifer Pahlka explains why people should apply to this program:
The third round will have 14 projects based on three focus areas: Making Digital the Default – Building a 21st-Century Veterans Experience; Data Innovation – Unleashing the Power of Data Resources to Improve Americans’ Lives and By the People, for the People; and Crowdsourcing to Improve Government.
