The American Public Works Association (APWA) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational and membership organization whose exempt purpose shall be the advancement of the theory and practice of the design, construction, maintenance, administration, and operation of public works facilities and services; the dissemination of information and experience upon, and the promotion of improved practices in public works administration; the encouragement of the adherence by public works officials to a high professional standard; the professional and social improvements of its members; and the promotion of cooperation among all public, quasi-public, and private persons, firms, corporations, bodies, utilities, and agencies which have interests in the field of public works.
In line with our exempt purpose, the APWA has established a Mission to promote professional excellence, understanding of and competency and credibility in public works. This Mission is further served by delivering technical workshops, seminars, educational conferences, trade shows and credentialing combined with the offering of educational scholarships to further support students working towards an undergraduate or graduate degree in a public works-related field.
To fulfill our Mission, the Capital District Branch of the American Public Works Association is sponsoring a scholarship program for candidates pursuing a degree in Public Works related fields including but not exclusively in the fields of Engineering, Public Works Management/Administration/Operation or other programs within the public works profession.
