2021 Internal Funding Showcase: Fueling our Future

Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh’s second annual Internal Funding Showcase.

This year looks a bit different, as we are kicking off the celebrations virtually. But, it's no less of a celebration! We will be hosting a larger Funding Showcase event later this year. More information on that to come - stay tuned! Until we celebrate in person, the winners tell their own stories in the funding sections outlined below. 

Once again, we are excited to bring resources and recognition to faculty who are brimming with innovative ideas through both research and in teaching. Congratulations to each of this year's awardees. 


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