CRS is a participating agency in the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program. Administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the PMF program is designed to attract to federal service outstanding graduate-level students from a wide variety of academic disciplines who have an interest in, and commitment to, a career in the analysis and management of public policies and programs.

The PMF program is a two-year program. Initial PMF appointments are at the GS-9 level ($51,630 -$67,114 per year), GS-11 level ($63,467 - $81,204 per year), or GS-12 level ($74,872 - $97,333 per year) depending on qualifications. After successful completion of the first year, PMFs are eligible for promotion; upon successful completion of the second year, PMFs are eligible for another promotion and conversion to a permanent federal civil service position. Over 100 government organizations, including the Congressional Research Service, participate in the PMF program. PMFs compete for initial two-year appointments from among these organizations.
