Aspen Tech Policy Hub Launches Inaugural Fellowship Program

New West Coast Initiative from the Aspen Institute Will Engage Technologists in Policymaking

Contact: Jon Purves Senior Media Relations Associate The Aspen Institute Jon.Purves@aspeninstitute.org | 202.736.2111

The recently formed Aspen Tech Policy Hub is now accepting applications for its inaugural cohort of Incubator Fellows. The San Francisco-based policy incubator, which is part of the Aspen Institute Cybersecurity & Technology Program, seeks to teach tech experts about the policy process and help them to formulate and advance solutions that address society’s problems.

The program is the first to use the model of a startup incubator, such as Y Combinator or 500 Startups, to train technologists to better engage in policymaking. The ultimate objective is to build bridges between Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley, with policymakers that better understand today’s technologies and challenges, and technologists who recognize the important role of public policy.

Incubator Fellows will be in residence full time from June to mid-August 2019. During their residence, fellows will produce at least one practical policy output—for instance, mock legislation, toolkits for policymakers, white papers, op-eds, or an app—and will ‘exit’ the incubator by presenting their ideas to a stakeholder with decision-making authority over that issue. The Hub is seeking applicants with significant professional experience with technology, and fellows will publicly present their proposals in the fall of 2019 at events in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

More information about the fellowship and the link to apply is available here: www.aspentechpolicyhub.org

About the Application Process: The window to apply runs until midnight PST on Wednesday, February 27. Decisions will be announced in May, and Incubator Fellows will then start their residence at the Hub in June.

With technology growing in leaps and bounds, it doesn’t come as a surprise that a number of students today are pursuing a major in graphic design.

The work of a graphic designer is all around us, making the world more vibrant and joyful. They create illustrations, drawings, logos, color schemes, and layouts of magazine and web pages. They are the ones who choose text sizes and fonts, and often make all the visual elements of a project fit together in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Almost no product or service exists without the need for graphic design of some kind for marketing or brand identity purposes.

There are plenty of opportunities a graphic designer can get, whether it is in advertising firms, public relations firms, website design companies, and magazines and other publications. In some businesses, designers may be involved in the process of creating packages for various products or even for designing video games.

AIS Technolabs has come up with Graphic Design Scholarships for all budding designers. The intention is to give the designers an opportunity to hone their designing skills and get suitably placed in various industries thereafter.

Desired skills of a designer

Artistic Ability

Some computer programs may also require him to draw on the screen. Though computer software and applications aid the work of the designer, the person must be an artist at heart.

Knowledge of Graphic design software is as important in this field as an individual’s artistic ability. It’s desirable for students to have knowledge about the following :

  • CorelDRAW Graphic Suite X7 — illustration, tracing, photo editing
