The Heinz College’s Center for Economic Development is pleased to announce a new opportunity for students interested in the policy and practice of economic and community development in the United States.  The Heinz Fellowship in Economic Development will be awarded to one or two promising new MSPPM students a year that demonstrate a serious interest in this field.

“For decades the Heinz College has served as a professional pipeline for economic development  organizations (EDOs) here in Pittsburgh and across the nation,” said Greg Lagana, Director of Projects for the College’s Center for Economic Development.

"This new fellowship will help us continue to draw top talent into our classrooms and out to the communities and institutions we serve.  For students interested in neighborhood, urban, and regional development in the U.S., the decision to come to Heinz just got easier.”

The fellowship includes a tuition award, extra funding for practitioner conferences and workshops, and an internship requirement with a domestic organization with an economic development mission.
