The Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program was established at the Eisenhower World Affairs Institute in May of 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 to broaden their knowledge and exchange experiences and information on trends and advances in public works, through contact with our international partners.
  • To promote friendship and understanding among public works staff on an international basis.
  • To provide a venue for the exchange of information between APWA and our international partnering countries. Currently, these countries are Australia, the Czech Republic, Mexico, New Zealand and the Slovak Republic
The Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program has been in place since 1988.
