Schweitzer Fellowship Applications Due February 1

The Schweitzer Fellowship is currently recruiting graduate students in health, social service, and public interest professions to apply for 2020-2021 Schweitzer Fellowships.

The Schweitzer Fellowship is a prestigious year-long service learning program for graduate students in health-related professions who design and implement innovative direct-service projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of underserved Chicago area communities. Annually, 30 graduate students from diverse fields are selected to become Fellows who will design and implement year-long direct service projects.  In addition to their service projects, other elements of the Program are designed to inspire and inform the Fellows, and to reinforce their commitment to humanitarian service. These include supportive mentors, monthly meetings, symposia on pertinent public health issues, and service days. Fellows receive a $2,500 stipend for their participation.

Join the 2020-2021 cohort of outstanding interdisciplinary Fellows and a network of over 4,000 Fellows nationwide! Apply by Saturday, February 1.

To learn more about the Fellowship, register for an informational session at the Health & Medicine office on December 13 at 12:00 PM.
