H.J. Heinz Company Foundation Fellowship

Study Subject  :  Any Subject

Employer :  University of Pittsburgh

Level :  Any Level

The Heinz Fellowship was established in 1982 by an endowment from the H. J. Heinz Company Foundation to the University of Pittsburgh’s University Center for International Studies.

The fellowship is managed by the Global Studies Center at the University Center for International Studies, and is offered annually providing one year of practical, professional, and non-degree educational experiences through the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, USA.

The University of Pittsburgh is one of the leading research universities in the United States and includes 16 professional schools, 28 departments in the arts, social and natural sciences, 3,400 faculty members, 27,000 students, and library holdings of over 4.7 million volumes.

Pitt is located in an urban center of cultural, ethnic, and racial diversity.

Heinz Fellowships are granted to individuals from developing countries who demonstrate potential as future leaders in the public, government, non-profit, or private sectors.

The goal is to improve, early in a career, the fellows’ capacity to contribute to the development of their country and to enhance their understanding of the United States.

This is accomplished through a year of sitting in on selected courses and participating in practical professional activities while based in Pittsburgh. Upon acceptance of their final report, fellows will receive a program certificate from the University Center for International Studies.

This is non-degree program. Courses are observed on an informal basis, and do not earn credit towards any academic degree.
