Corporate & Foundation Support

Funding from corporations and foundations supports valuable work being done at the Heinz College. From cutting-edge research by some of the world's leading policy experts to support for future public interest leaders, these grants make a significant impact on our ability to achieve our mission.


Organizations interested in visible partnerships with Heinz College can provide support in several ways. Recent sponsorships have included the Verizon Foundation Distinguished Lecture Series and the annual Deloitte Consulting Student Challenge competition. Grants from corporations and foundations also support internships, scholarship funds and new educational initiatives.

Faculty Research

Heinz College faculty members are leading opinion makers in their fields. With the help of public and private support through research grants and corporate affiliate programs, these scholars are able to continue cutting-edge research in a number of public interest areas.
