The PMF Program seeks eligible graduate students every year who want to make a difference through public service. 

The selection process for the Presidential Management Fellows Program consists of the following:

  1. Application
  2. On-Line Assessment
  3. Finalist Selection

More information about application and selection is available on the PMF website, at www.pmf.gov

If you are interested in federal employment, you should consider this program (many fellows go on to secure a permanent position). Recent years have seen a number of public health related positions, and we expect to see even more this year.

The website has a lot of helpful information for applicants on the Become a PMF tab. This year the application will be open from September 30th – October 14th.
