Year of Pitt Global 


Please use the following form to submit your application for funding from Year of PittGlobal.  Faculty, staff, and students from all University of Pittsburgh campuses are encouraged to submit proposals for programs and projects that will incorporate international perspectives.

The Year of PittGlobal committee, comprised of faculty, staff, and students, will review each proposal. The Office of the Provost will provide matching funds up to $5,000 for approved projects.

Submissions will be accepted and reviewed on a continuous basis through March 2019. 

Please note: This application requires that you include a brief narrative proposal and a budget (using the downloadable Excel template at https://www.yearofpittglobal.pitt.edu/sites/default/files/downloads/YOPG_Budget.xlsx). Preparing those documents in advance will likely simplify the application process for you.  You will be able to save your application mid-stream and then return to it before final submission.

Applications will be reviewed by committee. Awardees will be notified within four weeks of submission.
