Schweitzer Fellows Program — Application Deadline February 1, 2015

Schweitzer

The Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows Program supports graduate students committed to becoming "leaders in service" — individuals who are dedicated and skilled in addressing the health needs of underserved populations, and whose example influences and inspires others. Each year, the Fellowship selects up to 30 graduate students from multiple schools and health-related disciplines, each of whom designs and implements their own 200-hour community service project that will help underserved Chicago communities improve their health and well-being.

In addition to their community projects, Fellows also work together to plan symposia and service days, and meet regularly to network, share ideas and learn from guest speakers. Fellows receive a $2,500 stipend for their participation, and must be enrolled in a graduate program through Spring, 2016 to be eligible.

Applications are due February 1, 2015. To learn more about the Fellowship and to apply online, please visit: www.hmprg.org/programs/Schweitzer  Please contact Ray Wang, Program Director, with any questions at rwang@hmprg.org
