KP Civic Innovation Fellowship

The Fellowship Program is a 6-month program supported by Code for Pakistan, the KP IT Board, and the World Bank, where a team of talented researchers, designers, community organizers, and developers collaborate to build apps, inspire citizen engagement, improve government, and show how to innovate in public services. These apps can help solve problems in a variety of public domains, such as healthcare, crime, disaster management, citizen engagement, transportation, traffic, education, etc.

Our Fellowship Program revolves around three key features:

  • Citizens and government working together, hand-in-hand, to solve problems
  • Adopting user-centric, lean, and agile development methodologies
  • Increasing civic engagement by creating innovative solutions in public services

The benefits that these fellows are getting includes a monthly stipend of Rs. 30,000/- for six months, professional mentorship, free workspace, leadership development training and above all a chance to work with a Government department to bring about a change in the digital landscape of KP.
