Become a PMF
The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is
administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Each
year, candidates apply to the program in efforts to be selected as
Finalists. Finalists are then eligible for appointment as
Presidential Management Fellows (Fellows; PMFs).
To become a PMF, you must participate in an rigorous,
multi-hurdle process. It takes patience and endurance, but also
gives you a chance to demonstrate your leadership ability and
potential. As a PMF, you will have earned your place in the
program, and the opportunity to grow professionally, serve your
country, and make a difference!
The very first step in successfully becoming a PMF is paying
attention to the details of the annual application and assessment
process. For detailed eligibility requirements, check out the Eligibility webpage. Once
the application period opens, it will appear on
USAJOBS (www.usajobs.gov). The application is typically
open for two weeks and closes at 11:59 PM (Eastern Standard Time)
on the last day. Review the Application Process to learn about
all the steps to apply.
This Become A PMF section outlines major components of the
application and assessment process. Applicants should review each
component, including the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), which
may be updated throughout the process.
