The Biden administration has established the U.S. Digital Corps to enlist and train technology professionals to serve in digital positions within the federal government and tackle major challenges like COVID-19 and cybersecurity.

The program will launch later this year as a two-year fellowship for 30 initial participants, who could serve at initial host agencies like the General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

GSA's Robin Carnahan said, "The Digital Corps fellowship offers technologists just starting out in their career the opportunity to work on some of the most pressing challenges that we face and develop innovative solutions that make government work better for the American people."
