The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program Application Process Opens Friday, November 18, 2016 – for 3Ls and Recent Graduates!

Are you interested in a career in the federal government?  The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program matches outstanding graduate students with exciting Federal opportunities.  This rigorous, two-year paid fellowship includes challenging assignments, developmental assignments, and networking opportunities. Finalists appointed as PMFs are hired by Federal Agencies and engage in solving domestic and/or international issues in areas such as public administration, engineering, technology, science, criminal justice, health, privacy, cybersecurity, and financial management, to name a few.

The on-line application will open Friday, November 18 and close on Thursday, December 1, 2016.  The application will be accessible via an announcement on USAJOBS. The announcement will include detailed instructions on how to apply. Allow approximately 3-4 hours to complete the entire application, to include: the biographical, eligibility, and demographics information; document submission; essay; and, on-line assessment.

To learn more about eligibility and how to apply, please review the “Become a PMF” section on the PMF website. Carefully review the “Application Process” and “Application Tips” sections on the PMF website before starting your on-line application. The application process is very competitive.

If you have any questions, please email Karen Warren, the law school’s PMF liaison.

If you are selected as a Finalist, you will be invited to participate in the virtual PMF job fair and given online access to the PMF job opportunities.  Once you secure a position with a Federal Agency, you will become a PMF.
