As part of the Technology Transformation Services, the General Services Administration (GSA) has announced the members of the first cohort of Presidential Innovation Scholars for this year. The program recruits technology and innovation leaders from the private sector and places them in federal agencies as strategic advisors to help government leaders address various national priorities.

This year’s 12th PIF class consists of 21 students who will focus on technology modernization goals. In addition to this, a second cohort is slated to launch later this year with a focus on artificial intelligence under the Safe, Secure, and Reliable Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence Executive Order. GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan expressed excitement about how these innovators will work alongside agency leaders to improve service delivery to the American people.

Since its establishment in 2012, PIF has hired over 250 associates who have made significant contributions to public service. Some of their accomplishments include improving data sharing at the Department of Veterans Affairs and supporting technology modernization efforts at the Department of Justice. The program aims to continue leveraging the expertise of private sector leaders to drive innovation and improve government services.
