About / Careers / 2023 Thomas J. O’Bryant Transportation Policy & Finance Fellowship

The Eno Center for Transportation is now accepting applications for its Summer 2023 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.

Duration of the appointment is 10 weeks (start/end dates to be determined by successful candidate and Eno staff.)

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


The Thomas O’Bryant Fellowship is traditionally in-person at Eno’s offices in Washington, DC. Given the unpredictable nature of the coronavirus pandemic, we will consider options for a remote fellow, if necessary, and reassess as public health considerations dictate.

Fellows are paid $1,340 bi-weekly.

Eno’s Commitment to Diversity

Eno believes that a diverse group of staff, board members, and partners (both formal and informal) from various racial, ethnic, political, and professional backgrounds helps to enhance and validate the quality and rigor of our research and policy work and inspire free and spirited exchange that draws upon a wide variety of views, thought, experience, and personal background. To guarantee such an environment, Eno is firmly committed to the promotion of diversity in all its dimensions. Internally, we cultivate a culture of inclusion that will make the Eno workplace a welcoming environment for all. This commitment to diversity extends to our external networks, advisors, and affiliates with whom Eno regularly interacts.
