Global Studies Center Student Organization Event Funding Guidelines
The Global Studies Center is open to supporting student-led campus events that align with our mission and certificate concentrations (world ecologies, cultural dynamics, politics and economy, health and wellbeing, global health, peace conflict, and security).” We accept applications on an ongoing basis. Due to budget constraints, we can match funds (typically up to $200) for events that complement and enhance our current programming.”
To request support, briefly explain how the event relates to Global Studies Center’s mission and global concentrations, its expected audience and impact, and the proposed schedule. We aim to respond to all requests within one week. Recipients must submit a brief report detailing audience participation and numbers.
Please complete the application form provided here.
If you have any questions, please email Elaine Linn at EEL58@pitt.edu.
The University of Pittsburgh’s Global Studies Center offers H.J. Heinz fellowships to students from developing countries who aim to pursue a Master’s degree and show potential as future leaders in various sectors.
Candidates must meet these criteria:
- Have been accepted to a Master’s program (beginning the academic year for which they seek the Heinz Fellowship) in the Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH), the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), the School of Law, the School of Education, or the School of Nursing.
- Hold an undergraduate university degree.
- Possess proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing English.
- Preference given to candidates in early or mid-career stages.
- The Fellowship targets individuals in practitioner and policy domains, not for basic academic research, academic sabbaticals, or medical research.
Fellowship Requirements For Global Studies Center:
During the residency, Fellows are expected to present at least once on a topic related to their professional experience to University members. They are also encouraged to engage in community outreach by lecturing about their home country to high school students or interested adults.
Acceptance of the grant implies an agreement between the grantee and the University. Grantees are expected to stay for the full tenure of the award, except for unforeseen emergencies. Leaving the U.S. or terminating the grant earlier than specified without University consent obligates the grantee to reimburse any expenditures made on their behalf.
Upon completion, Fellows must submit a final report detailing their activities, experiences during the Fellowship, and plans upon returning home. These reports are shared with program officials at the University of Pittsburgh and the H.J. Heinz Company Foundation, serving as references for future Fellowship recipients. Upon acceptance, Fellows receive a Heinz Program certificate from the UCIS.
The Fellowship is a one-to-two-year position that includes support in the form of a living stipend of $19,200 (paid monthly) and a $1,000 fund for program and professional activities.
