Presidential Management Program (post-grad positions) opens 10/23!

Bearing the Presidential moniker, the PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. It was created more than three decades ago by Executive Order and has gone through many changes over the years. The Program attracts and selects the best candidates possible, but is really designed with a more narrow focus – developing 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. You have the opportunity to apply for 1 or 2 year fellowships with various government agencies through the PMF Program.

If you are interested in applying to the PMF Program, or to learn more, please contact Dean O’Brien: ab139@uakron.edu. The application opens October 23 and closes November 1 at Noon!
