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. Apart from wages earned from internship work, Fellows can also receive a stipend from the College in their second year, conditional on their satisfactory fulfillment of the Fellowship's requirements.
