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..
APWA’s Global Solutions in Public Works is intended as an international exchange forum for information promoting leading edge and best practices in public works. The program is also intended to encourage the application of these leading edge and best practices in the global public works community. The program includes an opportunity for limited funding for members of the global public works community to: explore cutting edge projects that might have application in their communities, provide outreach to educate/share best practices with public works officials in underdeveloped countries, and participate in approved study tours.

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.
