Lauble Fellowship

Stephen M. Lauble Community Fellowship

Each year, one to three students are selected through a competitive process to receive the Stephen M. Lauble Community Fellowship, which requires them to intern in Pittsburgh public or nonprofit agencies. Initiated in 1995, the fellowship was established to encourage the school's students to choose careers that contribute to the economy and environment of Pittsburgh's neighborhoods. The award is given in memory of Steve Lauble, a 1993 Heinz School alumnus whose work exemplified a commitment to the city's economic and neighborhood development.

The competitive application process is announced and conducted early in the spring semester each year. Lauble Fellows also receive a minimum Public Service Career Opportunities Program award of $2,500 if they accept eligible public service employment after graduation. Payment of awards is made after graduation according to the rules set forth in the program guidelines.
