Brief description:

The Global Studies Center (GSC) at the University of Pittsburgh is extending fellowship opportunities to individuals from developing countries who exhibit the potential to emerge as future leaders in the public, governmental, non-profit, or private sectors.

About the Award

Heinz Fellowships are awarded to individuals from developing countries who exhibit the potential to emerge as future leaders in the public, governmental, non-profit, or private sectors. The aim is to enhance, early in one’s career, a Fellow’s ability to contribute to the development of their country and to deepen their comprehension of the U.S. The Fellowship has undergone restructuring starting from the academic year 2012-13 to align with specific Master’s programs offered by Pitt professional schools. The GSC no longer directly accepts Heinz applications. Individuals interested in applying for the Fellowship are encouraged to contact the professional school to which they have applied after receiving their acceptance.

Eligible Field of Study

University of Pittsburgh professional schools eligible for potential Heinz support include the Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH), the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), the School of Law, and the School of Nursing.

  1. Eligibility:1.1 The Heinz Fellowship competition is open to individuals from developing countries who, early in their careers, demonstrate a strong track record indicating potential for leadership and success in business, government, public services, or other relevant professions. Applicants must have received acceptance into a Master’s program at the GSPH, GSPIA, or the School of Nursing for the academic year they are seeking the Heinz Fellowship.

    1.2 Applicants must hold a completed university degree.

    1.3 Proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing English is a requirement for applicants.

    1.4 Preference will be given to applicants in the early or mid-stages of their careers.

    1.5 The Fellowship is designed for individuals in the practitioner and policy domains and is not awarded for basic academic research, academic sabbaticals, or medical research.

  2. Selection Criteria:2.1 During the residency, the Fellow is expected to deliver at least one presentation on a topic related to their professional experience to University members. Additionally, the Fellow is strongly encouraged to engage in community outreach activities by lecturing about their home country to high school students or interested adults in the region.

    2.2 Acceptance of the grant by the candidate establishes an agreement between the grantee and the University. Grantees are expected to stay for the full tenure of the award, barring unforeseen emergencies. A grantee leaving the U.S. or terminating the grant earlier than specified without the University’s consent will be required to reimburse any expenditures made on their behalf.

    2.3 Upon completion of the Heinz Fellowship program, Fellows must submit a final report detailing and evaluating their activities and experiences during the Fellowship, along with plans for applying the Fellowship upon return to their home country. These reports are distributed to program officials at the University of Pittsburgh and representatives at the H.J. Heinz Company Foundation, serving as references for incoming Fellowship recipients. After acceptance of their final report, Fellows will receive a Heinz Program certificate from the UCIS.
