Two UMKC students, Fatima Delic and Cameron Casey, have been selected as 2017 Harry S. Truman Bootstrap awardees. Chosen in a competitive process among UMKC undergraduate applicants, they will join interns from the other University of Missouri campuses living together in condos near the Capitol and working in offices of Missouri representatives and senators.
Cameron Casey, an Urban Planning and Design major, and Fatima Delic, a double major in Political Science and Communication Studies, will be assigned to governmental offices (legislative or administrative) and will work with identified mentors while there.
Being an intern in Washington can be an exciting and rewarding experience, with an endless number of monuments and museums to visit, people from a variety of places to network with—and an amazing chance to involve oneself in the exciting and fast-paced daily life on Capitol Hill.
