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 Spring 2017 cohort of Fellows is December 11th, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. Interviews for those who advance to the next round of consideration will take place in January and February.
