A Truly Unique Program in Support of Our Region
As one of the only fellowships of its kind across the country, the Peters Fellowship provides a graduate student with a paid work and enrichment experience in one of the nation's largest metropolitan areas at a major regional planning agency – the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning.
Past Peters Fellows have worked in such areas as land use, transportation, environment and natural resources, housing, and economic development. Many fellows have worked on local planning projects within CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program or on development of the comprehensive regional plan.
Through the Peters Fellowship Program, we hope the best and brightest students will regard regional planning as a viable career and view the Chicago metropolitan region as an exciting and rewarding place to apply their talents.
