Schweitzer Fellowship

Schweitzer Fellowship for students in health-related professions

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, they select 30 graduate students from diverse fields to become Fellows who will design and implement year-long direct service projects. They are seeking Chicago-Kent College of Law students to join the next class. 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 $2,750 stipend for their participation.

Join the 2022-2023 cohort of outstanding interdisciplinary Fellows and a network of over 4,000 Fellows nationwide!
