We hope this message finds you safe and healthy. We have some important information and updates to share with all of you related to the upcoming PMF Class of 2021 Application Cycle.

First, mark your calendars and spread the word! The PMF Program Office is happy to formally announce the dates for the PMF Class of 2021 Application, which are as follows:  opening Noon (ET), Wednesday, September 30 and closing Noon (ET), Wednesday, October 14, 2020. These dates, and any updates, have been posted here: https://www.pmf.gov/become-a-pmf/2021-application/. Approximately six weeks after the application closes, we expect to announce PMF Class of 2021 Finalists.

We have also released the “2021 PMF Assessment Preparation Guide” and posted it to the PMF website. The guide can be found under the “Become a PMF\Assessment Process” section at https://www.pmf.gov/become-a-pmf/assessment-process/. The Guide explains the 2021 PMF assessment process, includes sample questions, the process for requesting a reasonable accommodation, and identifies the system requirements for completing the on-line assessment.

Finally, we have updated many of our resources for applicants and academia and have also added some new resources. For an overview of what’s new for the upcoming 2021 Application Cycle, visit: https://www.pmf.gov/academia/overview/. A few of our new resources include:
