Pitt2Pitt

Effective June 4, 2020, the Pitt2Pitt program is also available to Pitt seniors who will graduate in Summer 2020 (as well those who graduated in Spring 2020).

Graduating Pitt Students 

Are you trying to improve your skills to make you more competitive in this challenging job market? Consider applying to a University of Pittsburgh master's degree or certificate program.  

Under the Pitt2Pitt program, Pitt is offering streamlined admissions and $2,500 to $5,000 scholarships for spring and summer 2020 Pitt graduates into nearly 40 graduate and professional programs in a broad set of areas and on a first-come-first-served basis. There are a limited number of one-time scholarships for each program. In most cases, in-state students will receive a $2,500 scholarship and out-of-state students will receive a $5,000 scholarship—confirm the award amount with the program.

Pitt students with specific majors and GPAs are eligible for automatic admission and scholarship awards for graduate study in areas like data science, management, public health, health sciences, engineering, law, education, etc. Graduates from the regional campuses in majors not offered on the Pittsburgh campus should contact the Pitt2Pitt programs to determine eligibility. 

Pitt is extending this offer to students interested in enrolling in specific online, hybrid and in person programs. Space in these programs may be limited, so we encourage you to contact the admissions staff as soon as possible using the links below. 

Participating Programs

Representatives of these programs will describe their programs and answer questions during the Pitt2Pitt Virtual Graduate Program Recruiting Fair, which will take place via Zoom meetings from 4 to 6 p.m. EST on May 7, 2020.
