Fellowship opportunity

All—

Obama has announced the second round of Presidential Innovation Fellows and I wanted to make sure you all were aware of the opportunity. The Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) program pairs top innovators from the private sector, non-profits, and academia with top innovators in government to collaborate during focused 6-12 month “tours of duty” to develop solutions that can save lives, save taxpayer money, and fuel job creation.

I was hoping that you all would share this widely since the second round will focus on nine very different topics, including disaster response & recovery, contracting tools, cyber-physical systems, open data initiatives, innovation, and financial systems. Because of the diversity of topics, I wasn’t sure who exactly who would be most interested in this opportunity. The White House is accepting applications between now and March 17th so there is a pretty quick turn around.
