In-state Students to Receive Additional Relief Funding from the Commonwealth

August 24, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Today, all in-state graduate and undergrade students (all campuses) will receive an email informing them that the University of Pittsburgh will distribute $7.5 million to more than 20,000 in-state students on all five campuses. These funds represent 100% of Pitt’s one-time state allocation of COVID-19 relief money that was recently granted by Governor Tom Wolf’s office. 

In-state undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled at least half-time will receive grants of approximately $350. The final dollar amount will be determined based on in-state student enrollment following the end of the drop/add period for the fall term, which concludes on September 9. 

In late September, eligible in-state students will receive a follow-up email informing them when the grant amount has posted to their account in PittPAY, the University’s online student billing and payment system.
