Graduate and Professional Student Funding Opportunities Portal

Dear Graduate or Professional Student,  

Welcome to the Funding Opportunities Portal! This joint initiative of the Office of Research and the Office of the Provost is a centralized funding repository to serve Graduate and Professional Students across our University. Here you’ll find general and discipline-specific information on external funding to pursue your independent or collaborative research, academic and professional development, or other scholarly undertakings. You’ll also find a page of tips to help you in the application process here.

As one of the country’s leading public research universities, research, artistic, and scholarly activities are central to the University’s mission to advance the frontiers of knowledge and creative endeavor. You have the unique opportunity as a Graduate or Professional Student to take advantage of exciting and rewarding research, scholarly, and professional development while at Pitt and beyond.

We encourage you to explore these opportunities through this Portal—an initial point of departure to locate funding and related resources. Let us know about suggestions for additions to this Portal and best of luck in searching and applying.
