|FUSE Fellowship, General Application|
The FUSE Fellowship is an opportunity to develop and implement unique solutions to a community’s most pressing challenges. For 12 months, FUSE Fellows work within local government to bring innovative approaches to a specific project. Each fellowship is designed to leverage private sector experience to deliver results that have lasting impact.
FUSE Fellows are placed at the executive level of local government working with senior leaders of departments and agencies. Prospective responsibilities may include thorough data analytics and research, developing enhanced operations and financial models, building change management and strategic planning processes, and/or building broad coalitions to support project implementation efforts.
Previous FUSE Fellows have tackled a range of community challenges on topics including public safety, education technology, workforce development and sustainability. Examples of FUSE Fellows work include the creation of the Silicon Valley Talent Partnership, the development of a strategy to clean up neighborhoods in Los Angeles, and the establishment of new online resources for educators in California.
FUSE Fellows receive training throughout their fellowship drawing from the best practices of leading for-profit, public and social sector organizations, including McKinsey & Company, Stanford Institute of Design (d.school), and the Harvard Kennedy School. They also receive hands-on support from a host champion within the local government, an executive coach and the larger FUSE community of staff, alumni and advisors.
FUSE recruits on a rolling basis for its general candidate pool and on a project-specific basis when new fellowships become available.
If you are applying between program cycles, we encourage you to complete the General Application so that we can learn more about your background and goals. We will be in touch if a project becomes available at a later date that is a good match for your skills and availability.
