M.U.P. students Kevin Bush and Natasha Krol Mauskapf awarded prestigious fellowship with Chicago Mayoral Office

Two Master of Urban Planning students will spend the summer in Chicago, working for the Mayor’s Office of Richard Daley. Second-year student Kevin Bush and Natasha Krol Mauskapf, who is graduating with a Master of Architecture degree this year and a Master of Urban Planning degree in 2011, were selected for the Mayor’s Fellowship Program. The summer program runs from June 14 to August 26, 2010, and gives students hands-on experience in public policy and municipal government. The fellowship’s objectives include developing green initiatives, researching ways to keep Chicago affordable, analyzing information on Great Lakes policies, and creating programs to connect residents with cultural resources. Throughout the experience, Bush and Krol Mauskapf will work closely with Mayor’s office staff and city department leaders, attend press conferences, and draft memoranda about issues and new initiatives.
