Civic hackers: The White House wants you

Presidential Innovation Fellows

The White House is now accepting applications for the 2014 Presidential Innovation Fellows program. Deadline is April 7.

From the PIF application:

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.

Fellowships start late June/early July. Apply here.

U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer Jen Pahlka discusses the program:
