The University Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce a request for applications for the 2004-2005 round of the H. J. Heinz Company Foundation Fellowship Program. The Fellowship provides for one year of practical, professional, and non-degree educational experiences through the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
The competition for a Heinz Fellowship is open to men and women from developing countries whose record of accomplishment early in their career indicates strong potential for leadership and achievement in the non-profit, government, or private sector.

This is accomplished through a year of auditing selected courses and participating in practical professional activities while based in Pittsburgh. Courses taken as part of the Heinz Fellowship do not earn credit towards an academic degree.
To be considered for the 2004-2005 round of the H. J. Heinz Company Foundation Fellowship, applications must be received no later than March 15, 2004.
