[The text below is from the announcement that I received.]

Last summer, the White House launched the Presidential Innovation 
Fellows program, which teams top innovators from the private sector, 
non-profits, and academia with top innovators in government to work 
collaboratively during focused 6-12 month "tours of duty" to develop 
solutions that can save lives, save taxpayer money, and fuel job creation.

The first round of Fellows has produced remarkable results, reimagining 
the way citizens engage with government services and information, 
opening up government data as fuel for entrepreneurship and innovation, 
enabling millions of veterans and other Americans to securely download 
their own health information, and more.

I'm thrilled to let you know that today, the White House launched Round 
2 of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program (#InnovateGov), focused 
on nine exciting projects, and has begun accepting applications at 
http://www.whitehouse.gov/InnovationFellows.

The Presidential Innovation Fellows program offers a unique opportunity 
for Americans to work together to advance the public good and have an 
impact on a national scale. Whether as an applicant, someone who can 
encourage friends to apply, or someone who would like to follow and 
support the Fellows' projects, we invite you to join the team!

Yours truly,
Todd Park
