Questions about Funding study abroad? Check out the Pitt GEO's funding search page and note that SSOE has funding specifically for Pitt engineering students.
If you are applying to a Pitt-recognized program (PRP), you must work concurrently on the internal Pitt application that you create at www.globalexperiences.pitt.edu and on your program provider’s application through their respective websites. You can’t move forward without completing both applications. While program providers’ application deadlines are often later than our internal Pitt deadline, you have to finish the Pitt application’s pre-decision steps by our internal deadline. A Pitt GEO Advisor will ensure that both your GPA and your disciplinary record allow your status to be changed to “nominated” on your Pitt application. The actual acceptance to your PRP comes from the provider only after you are nominated by Pitt.
You can find the application for the CUHK International Summer School here under "Apply for an unforgettable summer experience."

Om Swastiastu Pitt! My name is Lauren, and I am one of the Global Programs Managers in the Swanson School of Engineering.
