Schweitzer Fellowship Opportunities for Graduate Students
The Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellowships Programs is looking for outstanding service-minded graduate students in health, social service and public interest professions to apply for the 2013-14 Schweitzer Fellowships.
Each year, 30 students from a wide range of disciplines are selected as Schweitzer Fellows to design and implement innovative projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of underserved communities throughout Chicago. The Schweitzer Fellowship provides students an opportunity to augment their academic careers with experience working in communities, planning and leading a project from the ground up, and making an important difference in the lives of others. In addition to their community work, other Program elements help to inspire and inform the Fellows and reinforce their commitment to humanitarian service. These include monthly meetings, symposia on pertinent public health issues, and service days. Fellows may look forward to becoming part of a national community of “Fellows for Life,” i.e., 2,500 Schweitzer alumni who are continuing to act upon their idealism by leading lives of service.
If you are interested the deadline to apply is Friday, February 1, 2013.
