To become a Presidential Management Fellow (PMF), you must sign up for a multi-phase process. It will take patience and endurance, but also gives you a chance to demonstrate your ability. Last year, more than 9,000 graduate students applied to the PMF Program and approximately 630 achieved Finalist status. If you become a PMF, you will have earned your place in the Program, and the opportunity to grow professionally, serve your country, and make a difference!
