About the program

The Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program was established by APWA in 1987 and is administered by APWA's International Affairs Committee. The Fellowship is named after former West Virginia Representative and Senator Jennings Randolph, known as the "Dean of Public Works Legislators," who served as the Chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee from 1966 through 1981.

Through the Jennings Randolph International Fellowship Program, APWA strives to further these international principles:

  • To provide an opportunity for individuals to broaden their knowledge and exchange experiences and information on technologies and advances in public works through contact with APWA's international partners
  • To promote friendship and understanding among public works professionals on an international basis
  • To provide a venue for the exchange of information between APWA and APWA's international partner countries
