Now Accepting Applications for the 2019 Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program

Application Deadline: November 16, 2018

The Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program was established at the Eisenhower World Affairs Institute in May 1987 and is administered by the American Public Works Association. The fellowship supports participation at a public works conference of one of our international partners and a public works study tour in that country.

In making the program available to its members, APWA hopes to further its international principles:
  • To provide an opportunity for APWA members, through contact with our international partners, to broaden their knowledge and exchange experiences and information on trends and advances in public works.
  • To promote friendship and understanding among public works peers on an international basis.
  • To provide a venue for the exchange of information among APWA and our international partnering countries. Currently, these countries are Australia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, the Slovak Republic and Sweden.
Fellowships granted for travel to our partner countries are limited to a maximum of $2,500 (USD) to assist with travel costs and other expenses that may be covered by the award.
