Research/Travel Funding

PhD students are strongly encouraged to attend major academic conferences in fields relevant to their career development. The Doctoral Program provides each PhD student with an annual allocation for travel. In addition, the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) offers extra travel funding for graduate students who attend academic conferences.


The scholarships were the difference between just dreaming and realizing my goals.

After deciding to major in business, I thought it was best to attend college in a city where there are more opportunities for experiential learning and internships.
