2014 PMF: Application Cycle Open Thread

Well, it's that time of year again.  The 2014 PMF Program will start accepting applications tomorrow.

Something new for this year: there are two tracks, a regular PMF track and a PMF STEM track for those of you who have degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.

More info on the PMF Program is here:

The PMF STEM track here:

And you can stay connected via PMF's official Facebook page here:

[Update 10/7/2013] Finally, don't forget about GovLoop's Path to PMF guide:

As always, this is the place you hang out if you want to talk semi-anonymously about your experiences.  Good luck!


  1. I just wanted to say good luck to everyone this year! I was lucky enough to get to the semi-finalist stages last year and came to depend on this forum as a daily tool to keep updated with what other applicants had experienced and gauge what I could expect next!

  2. Hi everyone! Does anyone know what the notification time line will be for semi finalists? I know the application just closed, but should we expect something in November, December? What is it typically?

  3. The website stated that we should find out in late November if we are selected as a semi-finalist; however, last year everything ran a little slower than the official timeline. I would expect to findout by early December this year.

  4. Curious if anyone has heard anything back from the PMF yet? I know it is only mid-November, but getting nervous!

    1. Nope, haven't heard back anything. :-/

  5. semifinalists posted, congrats and best wishes!
