The Schweitzer Fellowship

Deadline- February 15, 2016

The U.S. Schweitzer Fellows Programs® provide community service fellowships for graduate students in health-related professional fields who are dedicated to addressing unmet health needs in their local areas.

Since its launch in 1991, the Schweitzer Fellows Programs have grown to include programs in Baltimore, Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Greater Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New Hampshire/Vermont, New Orleans, North Carolina, and Pittsburgh.

The U.S. Schweitzer Fellows Program has four overall goals:

  1. Provide direct services that address health-related needs of underserved communities
  2. Influence the professional development of students in health-related fields in ways that strengthen their commitment to, and skills in, public service
  3. Alter the culture of professional schools so they more effectively address needs of surrounding disadvantaged communities
  4. Support program alumni who continue in lifelong community service and who, as Schweitzer Fellows for Life, are influential role models for other professionals

CDC-Hubert Global Health Fellowship

Applications is open between January 26, 2016 to February 19, 2016

The fellowship provides an opportunity for third- and fourth-year medical and veterinary students to gain public health experience in an international setting. Hubert fellows spend six to twelve weeks in a developing country working on a priority health problem in conjunction with CDC staff. Through these experiences, students establish relationships with, and receive training from, recognized experts from CDC and other national and international health agencies.
