The Presidential Innovation Fellows program brings the principles, values, and practices of the innovation economy into government through the most effective agents of change we know: our people. This highly competitive program pairs talented, diverse individuals from the innovation community with top civil servants to tackle many of our Nation’s biggest challenges, and to achieve a profound and lasting social impact. These teams of government experts and private-sector doers are using approaches like design thinking and lean startup to achieve results for the American people in months, not years.
The deadline to apply for the Fall 2018 cohort of Fellows is April 29th, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST. Interviews for those who advance to the next round of consideration will take place in May.
