Sponsorship

The World History Center provides funding for fellowships in World History and to support Pitt faculty and graduate students for travel related to research or conferences.  We also offer Research Associate or Visting Scholar status to a limited number of world historians around the globe each year. 

 The WHC also supports events and research activities at Pitt. We welcome opportunities to co-sponsor talks or events on campus that align with our mission and research priorities.  We will evaluate requests for modest funding for events that focus on historical connections at the transregional or global scale. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and we encourage applications early in the academic year. Requests for support should be sent to whc@pitt.edu and should briefly explain the event’s intellectual connection to the WHC's mission and priorities, as well as its anticipated audience and impact, and the proposed schedule. Please plan to send a brief report to the WHC after the conclusion of your co-sponsored event.

Through our affiliation with NOGHWISTO, we promote world history events globally as well.
