Student Involvement

Welcome Students!

The mission of the Student Outreach Network is to educate students about public works, inspire them to get involved and transform the future. The Oregon Chapter welcomes students who wish to become involved and explore the advantages of becoming an APWA member. We currently award scholarships to Oregon colleges and universities that have programs in engineering and public works related degree programs, and appreciate the opportunity to connect with students and faculty whenever and however we can.

Here are some of the benefits that are available to you as a student member of APWA:

Add value to your resume while  gaining experience

Whether you are a  freshman or senior, there is a perfect spot for you. Become a board member and develop your knowledge of public works, planning,  and public speaking — while adding invaluable experience to your resume. Make a difference in your community and become a part  of something great.

Connect with professionals and participate in events

Network with professionals and connect locally with one of the 64 current chapters in North America. Use the APWA network to take technical tours on projects, meet potential employers, gain a mentor, and participate in local events. Take advantage of the member savings to practical resources, publications, and events.

Engage early to align yourself for later

Learn career building strategies now  to prepare for scholarships, internships, and career opportunities. Once a student member, it is an easy transition to the Young Professionals Network after college to continue your professional development.
