The Heinz Fellows are selected based on their records of exceptional achievements in their academic and professional careers and in their communities. They are placed in high-needs high schools in the Pittsburgh school district to serve as mentors, tutors and role models. By investing themselves in this program, these men are tangible expressions of what is possible for black youth in Pittsburgh and other urban settings. They also help the students create pathways that can lead to academic success and better life outcomes in their communities and beyond.

The Heinz Endowments views the Fellows Program as an extraordinary opportunity for a group of black men to provide a significant community service. They also are helping to establish a formidable standard for transforming public education.
