What is the PMF Program? The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is the Federal Government’s premier leadership development program for advanced degree holders (e.g., Master’s, Ph.D., J.D.) across all academic disciplines and from all segments of society. It is a full-time, two-year fellowship at a Federal agency with full salary and benefits, training and development opportunities, and a senior-level mentor; all of which can lead to a career in the Federal Government. Those who become Fellows also have access to a vast network of PMFs and PMF Alumni, a community that is now over 10,000 strong. Fellows are placed across the Federal Government at more than100 Federal agencies, including places like HHS, USDA, NASA, DOJ, EPA, Treasury, the State Department, and more. Go here to see a list of agencies that participate in the PMF Program. Fellows are initially placed at the GS-9, 11, or 12, and have promotion potential up to the GS-13 during the fellowship.
