Presidential Management Fellows Class of 2017 Apply Friday, Nov 18th – Thurs, Dec 1, 2016

The PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. It was created more than three decades ago by Executive Order and has gone through many changes over the years. 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. It provides some sustenance during the first years of employment and encourages development of leadership capabilities. 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.

We encourage you to apply for this prestigious program. The PMF Program is perfect for talented professionals who want to make a difference by strengthening our government institutions. This class of Fellows will work on policies and programs that directly impact the welfare of our Nation’s citizens. From national security to environmental protection to housing programs, Fellows are placed into jobs that challenge them to find new solutions to the complex challenges of government and learn the leadership skills they need to build a successful career.
