*UPDATE: Application deadline extended to November 6, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. EST*

I am happy to announce that the Class of 2018 Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is open for applicants today. OPM is honored to have played a role in the success of this Program (and its predecessor, the Presidential Management Interns Program) over the course of the past 40 years, and the impact those who have participated have on public service.

The 40th anniversary of the PMF Program reminds us of the importance of public service and the legacy of those who serve. The PMF Program is the Federal Government’s flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. It brings together highly-skilled graduates holding advanced degrees into the Federal Government to prepare them for future public-sector leadership. PMFs are appointed to a temporary, two-year Federal position, where they apply their skills while engaging in a rigorous leadership development program that includes classroom, cohort, and rotational experiences which could lead to a permanent career appointment at a Federal agency.

The PMF Program has created a lasting legacy of leadership and quality service across Government over the last 40 years and I am incredibly confident that it will continue to do so in the future. Just in this past year, we had 417 Finalists for the Class of 2017 who are graduates from over 140 academic institutions across 60 disciplines.

To read more about the PMF Program and how to apply for the Class of 2018, please check out our website at www.pmf.gov.
