Presidential Innovation Fellows Programs Seeks OSM, Open Data, and Crowdsourcing Expertise

The third round of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program has three foci:

  • Making Digital the Default: Building a 21st Century Veterans Experience (unclogging benefits for veterans via technology)
  • Data Innovation: Unleashing the Power of Data Resources to Improve Americans' Lives (opening government data in agencies including Census, NOAA, Interior)
  • By the People, for the People: Crowdsourcing to Improve Government (tap crowdsourcing to enhance OSM, the patent process, disaster response among others )

Fellow are well-paid (100K +), based out of agencies in DC, and typically work for 9-13 months (though they can participate for up to four years). Applications opened March 6 and are open until April 7. These sound like great positions for individuals with the right stuff.
