This full-time, two-year fellowship program is ideal for high-potential engineers who want to work on the toughest problems facing the country, and deliver impact at government scale.
Two years. A lifetime of impact.
For an intense 24 months, you will brainstorm and solve problems with industry leaders and technology experts, and work alongside technologists from public and private sector organizations, learning, architecting, and building technology for the public good.
Using the latest techniques and technologies in software development, critical thinking, designing user experience and product management, you will collaborate with public sector partners and volunteers to deliver digital services that are more user-centered and more efficient. You will also help build capacity by sharing knowledge and practices with the community.

As LSF projects usually run for around 2-3 years, LSF Fellowships are for 2-3 years.
As you gain valuable all-round skills during your Fellowship, the Fellowship experience accelerates your career, enabling you to leap-frog ahead of your peers in more traditional engineering positions in other organizations when you do move on from LSF.
LSF Fellows are “Forever LSF-ers.” Forever LSF-ers are family. We do our best to support and encourage you in your accelerated career path, even years after you have moved on.

As a nonprofit, we’re committed to building technology for the public good, not profits. That means we can help governments of all sizes tackle their most pressing problems at a fraction of the cost of other vendors. At the end of projects, we don’t walk away. We build capacity in government technical teams so they can continue to evolve systems and succeed long after we’re gone.
