Presidential Management Fellows Program

Application Deadline:  December 1, 2016

The Presidential Management Fellows Program (PMF) is an opportunity for a two-year professional development fellowship with the U.S. government that may lead to a permanent position in government service. It was created more than three decades ago by Executive Order and has gone through many changes over the years. The Program attracts and selects the best candidates possible, but is really designed with a more narrow focus – developing a cadre of potential government leaders. It provides some sustenance during the first years of employment and encourages development of leadership capabilities. The PMF Program inculcates a lasting bond as well as a spirit of public service, ultimately encouraging and leading to a career in the government.

Applicants must have obtained a qualifying advanced degree (master’s, professional or doctorate), including the successful defense/completion of any required thesis/dissertation, within the two years preceding the opening date of this announcement (e.g., between November 18, 2014, through November 18, 2016) or expect to complete a qualifying advanced degree by August 31, 2017. The qualifying advanced degree must be from an accredited academic institution. Although the program is not restricted to United States citizens, opportunities for PMF appointments for non-citizens are extremely rare and require eligibility to work under U.S. immigration laws.
