"The only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found a way to serve." - Dr. Albert Schweitzer

The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) improves the health and well-being of vulnerable communities by developing "Leaders in Service"—individuals who are dedicated to, and skilled in, meeting the health needs of underserved populations.

Combining a year-long, mentored 200-hour service project and a reflective and multidisciplinary leadership development program, the Fellowship develops professionals who are confident in addressing not only clinical health issues, but also the social determinants of health (including poverty, the environment, and education). Graduate student Schweitzer Fellows at 13 program sites across the country deliver more than 50,000 hours of service to 30,000 low-income clients each year. 99 percent of Schweitzer Fellows for Life (program alumni) say that ASF is integral to sustaining their ongoing commitment to serving vulnerable communities.

The Schweitzer Fellowship's programming is supported entirely by charitable donations and grants. Learn more, donate, or apply at www.schweitzerfellowship.org.
