Executive Order 13562, Recruiting and Hiring Students and Recent Graduates, and implementing regulations increased the applicant window of eligibility and removed the school nomination requirement. Students seeking advanced degrees and those who completed an advanced degree within the previous two years will use the application to apply for the Presidential Management Fellows Program. They will no longer be required to have a school nomination. OPM expects this will increase the number of applicants from years past. Information on the PMF Program can be found at www.pmf.gov.
