The PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program for outstanding advanced degree candidates or grad school graduates who want a career in public service or elsewhere. Eligible candidates apply and participate in a rigorous assessment process. Those ultimately selected as finalists seek appointments as PMFs (Fellows). In addition to salary and benefits, your two-year appointment as a PMF will provide a fast-paced opportunity to gain experience and develop your talents. PMFs perform valuable service to the American people while jump-starting their careers, and get challenging assignments, formal professional training, rotations to other agencies, feedback on their work plus an opportunity to make government run more efficiently.
