Heinz Fellowships are granted to individuals from developing countries who demonstrate potential as future leaders in the public, government, non-profit, or private sectors. Early in a career, the goal is to improve a Fellow’s capacity to contribute to the development of their country and to enhance their understanding of the U.S. The Fellowship has been restructured beginning with the 2012-13 academic year to align with specific Master’s programs of Pitt professional schools. The GSC no longer directly accepts Heinz applications. Candidates that are interested in applying for the Fellowship should please get in touch with the professional school they applied to after receipt of your acceptance.
Support includes a living stipend of $19,200 (paid in monthly installments) and a $1,000 program and professional activities fund.
The competition for a Heinz Fellowship is open to men and women from developing countries whose record of accomplishment early in their career indicates strong potential for leadership and achievement in business, government, public services, or other relevant professions.
Applicants must have been accepted to a Master’s program beginning the academic year for which they seek the Heinz Fellowship by the GSPH, the GSPIA or the School of Nursing.
Applicants must have completed a university degree.
Applicants must be proficient in speaking, reading and writing English.
Preference will be given to those applicants at their careers' early or mid stages.
The Fellowship is intended for individuals in the practitioner and policy domains. It is not awarded for basic academic research, academic sabbaticals or medical research.
Candidates should check the deadline for the school and academic year they intend to apply to.
