Education Policy Fellowship Program

The Educational Policy Fellowship Program is a 10-month in-service professional development program for emerging and mid-level leaders. These professionals work in public, non-profit, and private sector organizations, but they all share the same professional passion: education.

In 2014 the Cooperating School Districts of Greater Kansas City and the Local Investment Commission revived the Missouri-Kansas chapter to broaden the understanding and perspective of area educators and others working with children and families.

EPFP is no longer taking applicants for the 2016-2017 program, but more information about the program is available in the application brochure
