About this Fellowship

The flagship leadership development program at the entry-level of government work for advanced degree candidates.

The Program attracts and selects the best candidates possible, but is designed to develop a cadre of potential government leaders. It provides some sustenance during the first years of employment and encourages development of leadership capabilities.

The PMF Program inculcates a lasting bond as well as a spirit of public service, ultimately encouraging and leading to a career in the government.

Advanced Degree means a professional or graduate degree (e.g., master's, Ph.D., J.D.).

Applications are available annually via posting on, typically in late September. Once the position is posted, only 2 weeks are given to complete the application.
