Chatham University in the United States is welcoming applications for the Full Tuition Rachel Carson Scholarship award available for foreign students in 2021.
Established in 1869, Chatham University has an enrollment of more than 2,200 scholars across more than 60 undergraduate and graduate programs in their areas of excellence: business & communications, sustainability & health, and the arts & sciences.
Chatham has regularly been tagged a College of Distinction and a “Best College” by U.S. News & World Report, and the old school of environmental idol, Rachel Carson ’29, is constantly rated as one of the “greenest” colleges in the US.
Situated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – one of the nation’s most liveable cities and great college towns – Chatham University is comprised of three distinct locations: Chatham Eastside in the fast-developing East End; the famous arboretum, Shadyside Campus; and Eden Hall Campus, one of the world’s most ecological campuses.
Chatham’s objective is “to get scholars ready to build lives of purpose, importance, and rewarding work…by getting graduates ready to be informed and engaged individuals in their locales; to acknowledge and respect multiplicity of identity, culture, and outlook; and to live sustainably.” Based on this mission, Chatham is devoted to creating a supportive and comprehensive learning, living, and working atmosphere for all members of the campus community.
In 1890, the institution was renamed from Pennsylvania Female College to Pennsylvania College for Women, and in 1955, it was renamed again to Chatham College in respect of William Pitt, namesake of the City of Pittsburgh and First Earl of Chatham. In 1994, Chatham College extended around its famous undergraduate women’s college by starting to provide graduate programs to both men and women with a particular emphasis in the health science disciplines.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania gave Chatham university standing in 2007, which was formally announced on May 1, 2007 and marks Chatham’s most recent tradition, University Day. On May 1, 2008 Chatham got a gift unrivalled in its record: the Eden Hall Campus from the Eden Hall Foundation. The University’s Shadyside Campus grew in June 2008 to comprise Chatham Eastside near Bakery Square about one mile from Woodland Road and home to a lot of Chatham’s in-demand health science courses.
