Seeking Students for the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program

Since 1977 the PMF Program has matched outstanding graduate students with exciting Federal opportunities.

This rigorous, two-year paid fellowship includes challenging assignments, developmental assignments, and networking opportunities. Finalists appointed as PMFs are hired by Federal Agencies and engage in solving domestic and/or international issues in areas such as public administration, engineering, technology, science, criminal justice, health, and financial management, to name a few.

The PMF Program seeks eligible graduate students every year who want to make a difference through public service. For the PMF Class of 2013, students who complete an advanced degree (master's or professional) during the 2012-2013 academic year (September 1, 2012 - August 31, 2013) from a qualifying college or university are eligible for consideration.

The selection process for the Presidential Management Fellows Program consists of four parts

  1. Application
  2. On-line Assessment
  3. In-person Assessment and Finalist Selection
  4. Agency Placement as a Fellow

More information about application and selection is available on the PMF website, at

2. Flyers for Academic Institutions

The PMF Program Office has prepared several flyers for colleges and universities to use in publicizing the PMF Program at their schools. These can be found under the Academia\Resources webpage.  These are typically updated prior to the next application cycle.

Please note the use of the PMF Program logo containing the Presidential Seal is heavily restricted. Any official Program materials containing the logo must be printed in full-color.
