Keeping up with the world's challenges and solutions in public works is a high priority of APWA. Through its growing international programs, APWA offers its members multiple opportunities to share and learn about public works solutions and challenges around the world.

Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program

  APWA offers members of the association, through a Jennings Randolph International Fellowship, participation at a public works conference of one of our international partners and a public works study tour in that country. The Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program was established by the APWA International Public Works Federation (IPWF) at the Eisenhower World Affairs Institute in May of 1987. The APWA IPWF no longer exists, so the program is administered under APWA.
