Associate Application Process
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.
(Please note: the dates below are subject to change from year to year.)
|February||Phase I: PHAP 2014 associate application opens in USAJobs.gov from February 3–7, 2014. Prospective candidates will have five days to complete and submit an initial application.|
|February/March||Phase II: Qualified applicants will be asked to provide a personal statement and additional information (via the Fellowship Management System [FMS]) for further consideration.|
|April||Applicants will be able to view their application status by visiting FMS and logging into their account. Due to the large volume of applications, CDC will not respond to status inquiries by phone or email.||June/July||Phase III: CDC will notify PHAP finalists and schedule interviews to be held either in person or by teleconference. Candidates are responsible for all travel costs associated with attending in-person interviews. Final interviews, whether in person or via teleconference, merit the same consideration in the selection process.|
