The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program is one of the most prestigious and competitive government employment opportunities and serves as the federal government's flagship leadership development program. In 2023, thirteen master’s degree students from American Public University have been named Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF) Finalists for the Class of 2023. Since 2011, over 75 APUS students and alumni have achieved this status in the highly competitive government fellowship program.
PMF candidates should be highly motivated individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to scholarship, public service, leadership, and academic excellence. The application process for PMF typically opens for two weeks in the fall of each year.
Anyone interested in this program should visit the official PMF website to learn more about the opportunity, eligibility requirements, application dates, and the online assessment process. Applicants are also highly encouraged to review the PMF Assessment Preparation Guide, which is typically released on PMF.gov during the application window.
