Point Park University has been named a Regional Education Partner of Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College. As a Regional Education Partner, Point Park alumni enrolling as full-time students in a Heinz College master’s program will receive a scholarship of $6,000 per semester.
The award will be made at the time of admission (no separate application is necessary). To be considered for the scholarship, Heinz College applicants should indicate their Point Park University student/alumni status on the application for admission. Eligible students will receive at least $6,000 per semester, and most students will receive more.
This program is designed for Point Park University graduates interested in pursuing a degree in any of the master’s programs at Heinz College.
To apply, prospective students must take the GRE (or GMAT), complete an application form, and submit transcripts from all universities attended, three letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose and a resume. Students can apply on-line for free. Students are granted admission on the basis of academic achievement, performance on the GRE, experience in the proposed field of study, leadership experience, fit of their goals with the program, and recommendations that indicate they are capable of excelling in a rigorous master’s program. No single factor guarantees or prevents admission; all factors are weighed in the process.
