News: OPM extends PMF application period

OPM has extended the application period for individuals to submit their applications for admission to the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Class of 2018 to Monday, November 6 at noon EST.

OPM decided to extend the application period to allow potential applicants in areas affected by recent natural disasters sufficient time to complete an application. For example, recent hurricanes have left Puerto Rico and other locations without power and internet access, resulting in applicants being unable to access and complete the online application by the original deadline of November 1.

The application period will be extended for all applicants.

Individuals in affected areas who believe they may have difficulty obtaining the necessary supporting documentation to complete their application will have the option to indicate this status in the online application. The PMF program office will work with those individuals to obtain necessary supporting documentation to verify their eligibility for the program both during the application period and after it closes.

Created by Executive Order 40 years ago, the Presidential Management Fellows Program (PMF) brings highly-skilled graduates holding advanced degrees into the Federal government to prepare for future public sector leadership through a highly competitive application and assessment process. PMF is the flagship leadership succession management program for the Federal Government.
