Presidential Management Fellow Program

The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry-level for advanced degree candidates. Created more than three decades ago, the program attracts the best candidates and allows Indian Affairs to draw from a cadre of potential Federal Government leaders who are interested in shaping the future of Indian Affairs programs. The program itself 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.
