ALCOA Ambassadors Program
Through the generosity of Alcoa Inc., the iSchool is pleased to announce that we are now able to offer a number of significant scholarships to students who will improve the population of diversity within the iSchool. Students entering the undergraduate Information Science Program are eligible for the scholarship, providing they have achieved a minimum QPA of 3.25 in their studies prior to entering the iSchool. Students who have demonstrated exceptional academic performance while at the University of Pittsburgh may be awarded an even greater amount of scholarship funds for a semester or academic year. Students are nominated for the “ALCOA Ambassador Scholarships” by a committee of faculty in the undergraduate Information Science Program at the iSchool. The iSchool is one of a select number of institutions to participate in this Scholarship Program, which aims to increase the diversity of the Information Science profession.
IS Scholarship Fund
This fund, supported by the SIS endowment, is offered to any undergraduate or graduate student in the school. The gift amount depends on the funds available.
Education, Not Training
The iSchool provides education rather than training, enabling our graduates to be experts in many professional areas.
