Giving Opportunities ⁠— Featured Funds

Pittsburgh Network Fund

The Pittsburgh Network is a volunteer-led organization bringing together the CMU community across the Pittsburgh area through diverse engagement opportunities for alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff. Donations made to the network go directly to support those gathering efforts to build and strengthen the CMU community.

Pittsburgh Women’s Clan Scholarship

The Pittsburgh Women’s Clan Scholarship seems to have begun in the late 1930s during the Depression to help junior women achieve their Carnegie Tech education. Ultimately, the Women’s Clan merged with the Pittsburgh Clan to form the Pittsburgh Network. The scholarship continues to support women in their junior year.

Pittsburgh Network PLAID Scholarship

The Pittsburgh Loyal Scot AID (PLAID) Scholarship was created in 2012 and first awarded during the 2013-14 school year to recognize the Pittsburgh Network’s efforts in growing the Loyal Scot community as part of the Trustee Loyal Scot Chapter Challenge. This scholarship is awarded to a rising junior each year.
