Associate Application Process

The application period for PHAP associates is now closed.

PHAP candidates will apply for a two-year paid training program through the USAJobs website. Applicants must first register for USAJobs in order to submit an application.

After all submissions have been reviewed, a select number of candidates will be contacted by email and asked to provide additional information about the application process through the Fellowship Management System (FMS). Please refer to the timeline below for additional information on the application process.

PHAP recommends that prospective candidates return to this website periodically for updates, including new information about the program and any changes in the application process.
