Prestigious Awards for Pitt Faculty

Prestigious Awards for Pitt Faculty


The interactive dashboard on this page is an overview of some of the most prestigious recurring funding mechanisms available to Pitt faculty and researchers. Many prestigious programs are limited submissions.

The programs listed in the dashboard are organized by announcement dates, and represent the typical program timelines and milestones (e.g. program announcement, internal limited submission deadline, sponsor deadline).

Each program timeline is interactive: a popup window appears when a cursor is placed over the line. The window includes high level information- possible funding amounts, keywords, and sponsor information- and provides a link to learn more about program details.

Any listed program that requires internal coordination and is accepting applications will link to Competition Space, where one may apply for consideration to be an applicant representative of the University. Any programs listed that either do not require coordination, or that are not currently accepting applications will link to Pivot, a comprehensive funding opportunity database.

Both Competition Space and Pivot are resources available to the Pitt community and require either a login or PittNet connection. 

If you are considering applying to a prestigious program, please reach out to the Research Development team and to Philanthropic & Alumni Engagement (PAE) , so we may work to strategize on a competitive application.
