If you have educational aspirations beyond your undergraduate course work at Pitt, participation in the scholarship and fellowship opportunities available through the University Honors College can help make these become a reality.
Opportunities for undergraduate students are available during the academic year and summer in a variety of contexts: abroad, working in a laboratory (both at the University of Pittsburgh and at another institution), or analyzing texts. Research projects ranging from the applied sciences to the fine arts can find a place through the honors college.
Also, the University Honors College advises undergraduates, seniors, and alumni who are interested in pursuing national and international awards. These opportunities both recognize past accomplishments and give students enriching educational experiences beyond the classroom. The UHC provides guidance and support on scholarship, fellowship, and grant competitions.
If you are a high school student applying to the University of Pittsburgh, scholarships for entering freshmen are administered by the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
