The deadline is looming for the third round of Presidential Innovation Fellows! The third round of the program is focused on addressing three initiatives:
1) Making Digital the Default: Building a 21st Century Veterans Experience
2) Data Innovation: Unleashing the Power of Data Resources to Improve Americans’ Lives
3) By the People, for the People: Crowdsourcing to Improve Government
“This highly-competitive program recruits talented, diverse individuals from the innovation community and pairs them with top civil servants to tackle many of our nation’s biggest challenges, and to achieve a profound and lasting social impact,” according to the White House. Since August 2012, fellows have teamed up with those in government to develop new solutions to all manner of problems.
