Repair the World and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have initiated a strategic partnership to support alumni of Repair the World Communities fellowship who choose to pursue a degree in one of the 25 unique programs in CMU’s H. John Heinz III College of Information Systems and Public Policy. Repair fellowship alumni will receive financial support and more than usual flexibility in timing their start of the program, if they are accepted.

The Communities year-long fellowship program connects Jewish young adults with local opportunities to make a meaningful difference in their community. Pittsburgh is one of seven cities where the program operates. As a result of this partnership, up to ten Repair fellows and alumni per year will receive:

  • Merit-based scholarships equal to at least 30% of tuition per semester
  • Option to defer admission for up to two years (with written confirmation after initial 12 months)
  • Consideration for additional merit-based aid based on strength of application for admission
  • Waived application fees

For the 2018-2019 Program Year, Repair the World is still accepting Fellowship Applications at, with a January 29 priority deadline, and applications accepted on a rolling basis until May 31.
