The FUSE Fellowship is an opportunity to develop and implement unique solutions to a community's most pressing challenges. Entrepreneurial professionals who want to help solve some of the biggest challenges facing urban communities are encouraged to apply now to join the Fall 2019 cohort of FUSE Executive Fellows.

FUSE Fellows leverage their cross-sector skills to provide important services to city and county governments. By leading strategic projects, FUSE Fellows establish innovative and sustainable approaches that address a range of critical social issues. The next cohort of FUSE Fellows will help improve public health, foster economic development, advance affordable and safe housing, apply technology to improve service delivery, alleviate poverty, and further civic engagement.

The Fall 2019 FUSE Fellows will be leading projects in a number of US communities, including Los Angeles, Oakland, San Jose, and Washington, D.C. Fellows are experienced professionals with 15+ years of experience, particularly in the private sector or across a combination of the public, private and social sectors.

Apply now for the twelve-month fellowships that begin in September, 2019 by visiting the Fellowship Openings page and complete a brief on-line application and submit a current resume.
