The Code for America Fellowship

Code for America is now accepting applications for its 2012 fellowship. If you’re a developer, designer, researcher, or entrepreneur who wants to make a difference, this is your opportunity to build a new generation of Gov 2.0 apps to make city governments work better. CfA fellows get a crash course in how cities work, mentorship and networking with the top names in tech and government, and a platform to launch companies and careers that will bring long-term innovation to the public sector. They also get a living-wage stipend, travel expenses, and healthcare for the year. Most of all, they get the chance to be heroes.

Applications are due July 31, 2011. Apply now: http://codeforamerica.org/apply
