The Pittsburgh Schweitzer Fellows Program addresses the health and social service needs of underserved and vulnerable populations throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area and West Virginia. Each year, up to 25 graduate students or residents from any discipline who may be interested in providing community-based service are selected. Fellows design a direct service project that they implement through a community agency while they remain in graduate school. Fellows receive a $2,000 stipend. Environmental Fellows receive a $3,000 stipend. Application Deadline is February 15, 2013. Fellows will be selected to start their Fellowship year by April 1, 2013. There is now an environmental fellows initiatives focused on environmental influences on health.
Additionally, the Schweitzer Program cultivates a cadre of interdisciplinary like-minded professionals in training, drawing on Dr. Albert Schweitzer’s ethic of “Reverence for Life” and his vision that a wealth of idealism and altruism exists that can be tapped as a powerful instrument against the problems facing the world today.
