Repair the World, a national volunteer service organization with a Pittsburgh chapter, has entered into a strategic partnership with Chatham University to support alumni of the Repair the World Fellowship. Chatham will offer an automatic 20 percent tuition discount to alumni of the Repair the World Fellowship admitted into many of its graduate studies programs.
“We are excited to partner with Repair the World to support young people with the ambition to create change now and in the future,” said Trish Golla, assistant director of graduate admissions at Chatham, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to supporting Repair the World alumni in an academic environment rich with learning and personal growth opportunities.”
Pittsburgh is one of eight communities where Repair the World operates. The Chatham tuition discount is open to Repair Fellowship alumni from any community.
“This partnership with Chatham University enables Repair Fellows to continue their education in a stellar learning environment,” said Sam Kuttner, director of the Repair the World Fellowship, in a prepared statement. “Chatham’s values and focus on areas of food and sustainability offer opportunities that are in alignment with our alumni’s passion around food justice, and the education they receive there will be instrumental in their path as changemakers. We are fortunate that Chatham University is a partner of Repair.”
In addition to the partnership with Chatham, Repair the World also has partnerships for reduced tuition scholarships and other student benefits with Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Public Policy and with the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public & International Affairs and Master of Social Work program.
