What's New for 2023?

Below is a summary of the changes effective with the PMF Class of 2023 Application: 

  • Updated Application and Assessment Process: Changes are made to the application and assessment process periodically to more efficiently and effectively achieve the program goal of recruiting and identifying a qualified, diverse group of applicants who will become Finalists and Fellows. At a high level, these changes are outlined below:
    • The assessment process will consist of three distinct parts: (1) Fellows Behavioral Assessment Tool (FBAT), (2) Fellows Situational Assessment Tool (FSAT), and (3) Fellows Structured Interview (FSI).
    • The assessment process will be carried out in two stages: (1) the Online Assessment stage (which includes the FBAT and FSAT), and (2) the Semi-Finalist stage (which includes the FSI). Those applicants who are found eligible, submitted complete applications, and scored well may be selected as Semi-Finalists and invited to participate in the FSI.
    • The competencies on which applicants will be evaluated consist of: Attention to Detail, Flexibility, Integrity/Honesty, Interpersonal Skills, Oral Communication, Reasoning, Self-Management, and Supporting Diversity.
    • Finalists will be selected from Semi-Finalists based on assessment results and the total number of Finalists authorized.
  • Application Criteria: We have added new degrees, additional skills, and Swahili to languages effective with this year’s application. To see a full list, please refer to the Application Criteria
