The application window for the Service Design Studio’s Fellowship opportunity is now open!
The Designed by Community fellowship creates an opportunity to amplify the power and living expertise of residents who use or have used government services by equipping them with tools, resources, and a platform to design better public programs and services.
The program provides fellows with a fundamental understanding of service design, government structures and levers for change, and rapid testing of ideas. Through workshops, hands-on learning, and professional mentorship fellows can expect to gain skills in facilitating community-led design processes to collaboratively design (co-design) public services that are inclusive and accessible with the people who use and deliver them.
Designed by Community Fellows will walk away from this program with:
Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree (or are actively in the process of attaining a Bachelor’s degree). Experience working either in a professional or volunteer capacity with communities is a plus.Applicants who have lived experience using public services are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must also be New York City residents and be authorized to work in the United States. We are unable to provide sponsorship to fellows.
