AFWERX Fellowship Application

Since 2017, in partnership with AFRL, AFWERX has served as a catalyst to unleash new approaches for the warfighter through a growing ecosystem of innovators. In order to develop the workforce we need for our future Air Force, it is imperative that we expand and grow our collective knowledge and influencer networks, and uncover pathways to resources that enable us to keep pace in an environment where change is constant.

After a successful first cohort of fellows in 2020, AFWERX is excited to announce the 2021 AFWERX Fellowship Program which will be held virtually from May to August 2021.

During this five to six month cohort, you'll gain insight into AFWERX capabilities and processes, share your expertise and explore how we can collaborate to get after Air Force needs/requirements faster, smarter. To develop the workforce we need for our future Air Force, it is imperative that we expand and grow our collective knowledge and influencer networks, and uncover pathways to resources that enable us to keep pace in an environment where change is unyielding. General Brown has called upon all Total Force Airmen to “accelerate change or lose”. He challenges us to prioritize speed of delivery, foster a culture of diverse courageous problem-solvers through collaboration within and throughout. AFWERX Fellowship is one small step in developing this culture.

There are three teams you can choose to partner with during the May 2021- August 2021 virtual cohort (please ensure you are available for all four months, with the exception of holiday weeks).
