The L.P. Cookingham Institute is excited to coordinate on-the-job learning for MPA students. Internships are a unique way for students to own a project a bring benefit to an organization and our community utilizing their education and knowledge. We have various opportunities from Neighborhood Associations throughout the region and local governments from time to time. We also have a standing opportunity at the Kansas City Missouri Mayor's office. If you would like to learn more about current opportunities contact Cindy Laufer or call 816-235-6306.
