The Heinz Fellowship was established in 1982 by an endowment from the H. J. Heinz Company Foundation to the University of Pittsburgh’s (“Pitt”) University Center for International Studies (UCIS).
The Fellowship is offered annually and is managed by the Global Studies Center (GSC) at the UCIS. Pitt is one of the leading research universities in the United States with 13 professional schools, 31 departments in the humanities and social and natural sciences, over 4,800 faculty members, over 28,000 students, and library holdings of over 6.8 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, a Fellow’s capacity to contribute to the development of their country and to enhance their understanding of the U.S.
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.
During the residency, the Fellow is expected to give at least one presentation on a subject related to his or her professional experience to members of the University. In addition, the Fellow is strongly encouraged to participate in community outreach activities in the region by lecturing about his or her home country to an audience of high school students or interested adults.
