NATIONALITY ROOMS - GRADUATE SUMMER STUDY ABROAD SCHOLARSHIPS
The Nationality Rooms have awarded annual scholarships for summer study abroad to all parts of the world since 1948. The purpose of the awards is to give Pitt students the opportunity to experience in-depth immersion in another culture. Applicants may apply for up to two scholarships, but can only receive one award. We welcome students of all majors and courses of study. Furthermore, you may register your credit earned in the summer for the subsequent fall semester.
