Public Lands Transportation Fellows Application

The 2023-2025 PLTF Cohort is now complete!

PLTF Description

The 2023 Public Lands Transportation Fellows Program provides paid opportunities to advance the transportation workforce by attracting our next generation of public stewards to the field of transportation— through unique opportunities for career development and public service on key visitor transportation issues. Fellows work closely under the coaching and mentoring of staff of Federal Land Management Agencies (FLMAs), such as the National Park Service and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, to facilitate transportation planning or implementation projects for transportation solutions that preserve valuable resources and enhance the visitor experience. Through service at a unit or region/field office, fellows are invited to incite innovative change in our transportation systems and environmental lands management through significant contributions that advance cost-effective sustainability.

Future PLTF Cohorts

It is anticipated that the next application process for the 2025 fellows cohort will open around January 2025. (This date is dependent on available funding and the contracting process.)
