IRF Road Scholar Program
The Road Scholar Program identifies promising international students, whom of which are currently enrolled in graduate programs at the IRF Member Universities in the United States. The Executive Fellows are recommended by their professors and must demonstrate not only great educational accomplishments, but also a strong desire to use their education in their home countries.
As Executive Fellows, these students are invited to participate in the Road Scholar Program, alongside the IRF’s current class of Traditional Fellows. The Road Scholar Program is designed to provide Fellows with a better understanding of the business process within the transportation industry in the United States, the importance of leadership, and the benefits and merits of the International Road Federation. The Road Scholar Program will allow IRF members to make contact with future international leaders before the return to their home countries.
The Road Scholar assists the IRF’s Educational Program to accomplish it's mission to apply current transportation technology and management techniques to improve infrastructures around the world. The program gives the IRF members an additional opportunity to make contact with future international leaders before they return to their home countries, and it ultimately expands the IRF’s network of road-industry professionals and public officials.
