The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) Educational Foundation has extended the application deadline for its “Watford Fellowship” early-career, professional development initiative until April 15, 2016.
The American Railway and Engineering Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) Educational Foundation, in cooperation with the US Committee to the Watford Group of International Railway Designers, has created a unique learning opportunity for an aspiring railway employee to gain international perspective of railroad design and operations called the “Watford Fellowship.” The Fellowship will consist of two paid registrations to the 2016 Watford Conference in the Scandinavian region of Europe, valued at approximately $1,400. The four-day conference, targeted for late October, includes presentations by the attendees in all aspects of railway planning and design with an emphasis on buildings, bridge and tunnel structures, and corporate identity.
