Cookingham-Noll Fellowship at the City Manager’s Office of Kansas City, Missouri
The Cookingham-Noll Management Fellowship is one of the longest running and most well-known municipal management fellowships in the country. The program is designed to attract, develop, and retain talented individuals with an interest in a local government management career. It offers recent graduates of public administration (or related) Master’s programs a two year experience that gives fellows a “360-degree tour of the city.” This includes rotations in the City Manager’s Office, the Office of Management and Budget, and other departments of their choice. Fellows will also attend and participate in several meetings each week with the City Manager and other City lead
ership throughout their time as a fellow. After the fellowship concludes, successful participants are recruited by departments to fill available city jobs, and many of our top-level executives began their career in this program. The application portal will open on Sunday, December 27th and will close on Friday, January 29th. Required application materials include a resume, cover letter, transcript, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample based on a provided prompt.
