Graduate Students: Apply for Robotics and Technology Fellowships
Robotics and Technology Fellowships

Current graduate students from the University of Pittsburgh’s Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, the Swanson School of Engineering, the School of Computing and Information, and School of Law are invited to apply for paid Robotics and Technology Fellowships starting this spring. 

The new Pennsylvania – Robotics and Technology Fellowships program is a collaboration between Katz and Catalyst Connection,  a not-for-profit that helps small companies in southwestern PA accelerate revenue growth and improve productivity. The project, announced by Katz in September 2022, is the result of $62.7 million in federal funding to the Southwestern Pennsylvania New Economy Collaborative, including funding to Katz’s Center for Integrated Learning.

Register for Info Session: February 22 at 5 p.m.

These fellowships will support the adoption of robotics and autonomous technology by regional companies for the next three years as graduate students incorporate classroom learning into meaningful work. An information session will take place on February 22, 2023, at 5 p.m. ET, room 115, Mervis Hall. Students are encouraged to register for the information session here. 

Students will earn $2,000 (before taxes) for a virtual assignment of 6-8 weeks with onsite opportunities at the participating companies. Over the three years, more than 100 students are needed for technical, strategic, and market consulting roles in 27 small- and medium-sized businesses in agriculture, construction, energy, health care, manufacturing, mining, and transportation.

Applications will be available soon and students who register/attend the information session will be sent the appropriate link. March 2 is the application deadline for projects commencing March 20. Those who apply but are not accepted for the spring 2023 fellowships can reapply for summer or fall positions.
