To be eligible for the H.J. Heinz fellowship, applicants must have been accepted to a Master’s program in either the Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH), the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), the School of Law, the School of Education, or the School of Nursing. Applicants must have completed an undergraduate university degree and be proficient in speaking, reading, and writing English. Preference will be given to applicants at the early or mid stages of their careers.

The selection process for the H.J. Heinz fellowship involves presenting on a professional topic during the residency, participating in regional community outreach to share insights about their home country, and adhering to the full tenure of the grant. If a fellow terminates the grant early without the University’s consent, they will be required to reimburse the expenses incurred by the University. A comprehensive report on the fellowship experience is required for future reference and certification.

To apply for the H.J. Heinz fellowship, candidates must indicate that they would like to be considered for the program when submitting their Master’s program application. If interested in applying, candidates should contact the professional school they applied to after receiving their acceptance.
