Presidential Management Fellow Program


Bearing the Presidential moniker, the PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. 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. 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.

Application for the upcoming PMF Class of 2019 is scheduled to open at noon (Eastern Time), Tuesday, October 8, 2018, and close at noon (Eastern Time), Monday, October 22, 2018.

Individuals should review the Become a PMF section on this website to learn about eligibility and how to apply.  The “2019 PMF Assessment Preparation Guide” will be posted under this section in the coming weeks.  Please monitor the Become a PMF2019 Application section for updates to the timeline.
