Thomas J. O’Bryant Transportation Policy Fellowship – Summer 2019

The Eno Center for Transportation is now accepting applications for its Summer 2019 Thomas J. O’Bryant Transportation Policy Fellowship. This fellowship provides a high-quality professional development opportunity for aspiring transportation specialists. Successful applicants will gain in-depth knowledge of transportation policy and practice under the guidance of Eno staff.


  • Assisting in the development of Eno publications and products. Fellows play an integral part in the research and development of transportation research documents, policy recommendations, and events. Projects cover all modes, sectors, and levels of government within transportation.
  • Contributing to the premier transportation publication: Eno Transportation Weekly (ETW). Fellows cover transportation-related hearings on Capitol Hill, analyze legislation, and develop think pieces and other commentary for ETW.
  • Bridging the gap between research and policy. Fellows participate in Eno’s outreach through participation in conferences, briefings, and private meetings.
  • Gaining in-depth knowledge of U.S. policymaking. Fellows engage the policymaking community through association with the Board of Directors, Eno education programs, and briefings to policymakers.
  • Participating in Eno’s Future Leaders Development Conference. The selected fellow will be one of 20 students to participate in the annual Future Leaders Development Conference, June 2-7. This week-long conference held each year in Washington, DC gives participants an exclusive, inside look at how national transportation policy is made.


Duration of the appointment is 10 weeks (start/end dates to be determined by successful candidate and Eno staff, but the fellow must be available to participate in the Future Leaders Development Conference June 2-7).


Fellowships are awarded to bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and Ph.D. students working in transportation, engineering, housing, urban planning, or related degrees. Fellows must have already developed research skills and a strong writing ability.


Fellows are paid a stipend of $2,250 per month.
