Fueling our Future

The Internal Funding Showcase, Fueling our Future, brings resources and recognition to faculty who are brimming with innovative ideas in both research and the classroom. The showcase provides a platform to recognize the grantees of the Pitt Research Momentum Funds and the work of other seed funding program recipients. The goal of the showcase is to help spread enthusiasm for interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching across our campus, into the community, and beyond.
