Current University of Pittsburgh graduate students are invited to apply for paid Robotics and Technology Fellowships starting this spring. 

The new Pennsylvania Robotics and Technology Fellowships (PA-RTF) will support the adoption of robotics and autonomous technology by regional companies for the next three years as graduate students incorporate classroom learning into meaningful work. Students in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, the Swanson School of Engineering, the School of Computing and Information and the School of Law can apply.

Students will earn $2,000 for a virtual assignment of 6-8 weeks with onsite opportunities at participating companies. More than 100 students are needed over 3 years for technical, strategic and market consulting roles for businesses in agriculture, construction, energy, health care, manufacturing, mining and transportation.

The PA-RTF program is a collaboration between the Katz School of Business and Catalyst Connection, a nonprofit that helps small companies in Southwestern Pennsylvania accelerate revenue growth and improve productivity. The project, announced by the Katz School in September 2022, is the result of $62.7 million in federal funding to the Southwestern Pennsylvania New Economy Collaborative, including funding to the Katz School’s Center for Integrated Learning.

Apply by March 2; projects will begin on March 20. Applicants who are not accepted for the spring 2023 fellowships can reapply for summer or fall positions.

To receive the application link when it’s available, register for an information session at 5 p.m. Feb. 22.
