Projects

Presidential Innovation Fellows work on a wide variety of projects during their twelve-month tenure, resulting in multiple opportunities to serve citizens through far reaching or hyper-focused efforts. Projects can be solely focused on supporting agencies and/or delivering technology that has a cross-agency impact on the federal government.
