General Service Administration

Applications for the next cohort of Presidential Innovation Fellows are open May 16 – June 24, 2022 at apply.pif.gov! We’re looking for creative, courageous entrepreneurs, data scientists, design experts, software developers, system architecture leaders and more to serve as 12-month “entrepreneurs in residence” who radically improve the way government works. Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) is a renowned fellowship program that pairs mid-to-senior-level entrepreneurs, executives, and technologists of all kinds with leaders within the federal government to tackle some of our nation’s biggest challenges. Fellows are embedded within agencies as entrepreneurs-in-residence for 12-24 month engagements working on mission-critical problems, shaping smarter policy and/or advancing equitable technology for public good.


Our fellows come from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of skills, but they share compassion, excellence, and dedication. PIF is a platform and a home for changemakers, and our ability to navigate and collaborate effectively is critical to our success. We are humble, dependable, intentional, generous, and present. Every Fellow’s expertise — which spans data science, human-centered design, product, software and infrastructure, digital strategy, and more — is understood as a means to deliver government and technology that is accessible, secure, ethical, and equitable.


Past fellows’ projects have focused on improving care and access to benefits for our veterans, re-imagining cancer clinical trials to increase awareness and access for patients, advancing digital health platforms and diagnostics to combat COVID-19, ensuring AI tools are not biased against job seekers with disabilities, and creating a central digital location to share and improve outcomes for children within the foster care system.


To be part of PIF is …

To have a brainstorm turn into life-changing technology and policy
To surround yourself with a diverse community of compassionate, mission-driven leaders across technology, innovation, and social good
To be courageous, stay curious, and design with the public
To recognize and celebrate what makes each of us uniquely brilliant
To put people and purpose first in technology and in government
PIF is recruiting for the following areas of expertise:

AI, Data, and Analytics
Design and Experience
Digital Strategy
Software and Infrastructure
In our application, we ask every candidate to select one of these five PIF specialties. The specialty that you select should best align with your area of expertise. It’s okay if you have expertise in more than one area! We ask that you select whichever most closely matches your skill set. Doing so will help our team thoughtfully pair candidates with projects. Please read PIF track descriptions at apply.pif.gov.


Additionally, the specialty  you chose will not limit the agency partner projects that you may be matched to. The PIF team will match all potential candidates to the appropriate projects as many projects require multi-disciplinary backgrounds.
