2021 Internal Funding Showcase: Fueling our Future


The second annual Internal Funding Showcase: Fueling Our Future was held on September 2, 2021. This year’s showcase honored the awardees of the 2021 Pitt Momentum Funds (PMF), Pitt Seed and other internal funding awards. Hosted by the Offices of the Provost and the Senior Vice Chancellor for Research, this event is an annual celebration of the transformative research that’s being done across all disciplines leading to new knowledge. It's a time to celebrate the faculty who are brimming with innovative ideas through both research and in teaching. Congratulations to each of this year's awardees!

A video of the entire funding showcase is available for those who were not able to attend this year's event. 

Before we were able to host the Funding Showcase, we kicked off the celebrations virtually this year through a series of awardee videos. Check out the videos where the winners tell their own stories in the funding sections outlined below.

A complete list of the 2021 awardees may also be accessed via D-Scholarship.
