Presidential Management Fellows Program

Presidential Management Fellows Program

The PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. 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.

This highly selective, rigorous leadership program recruits recent graduates (who completed an advanced degree two years prior to the application opening date) and current graduate students.

Here is a sampling of degrees and disciplines for which the Federal Government has projected a need:

  • Accounting/Finance
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • International Affairs
  • Public Administration &
  • Public Policy
  • Public Health
  • Cybersecurity

Fellows receive: 

- Two year paid fellowships

- Competitive pay and benefits

- Leadership development training and mentorship

- Potential to convert to a permanent position in a federal agency
