For recommendations: we ask that you direct your references to this site to complete the recommendation form.

Any application/materials not submitted directly online should be e-mailed to upgadmit@pitt.edu with the subject line: Full-Tuition Scholarship.


Note: Full-tuition scholarship winners will forfeit the original merit scholarship offer made to them at the time of admission. Students who compete but are not selected to receive a full-tuition award may be selected to receive a small increase in their original scholarship offer.

Students who are dependents of University or UPMC employees are welcome to compete for the scholarship. In the event that a student with a tuition benefit is selected to receive the Full-Tuition Scholarship, the family would have to choose one or the other. The student cannot receive the Full-Tuition Scholarship AND use the tuition benefit as both cover tuition costs and are not applicable to other charges (room, board, fees).
