Schweitzer Fellows Application

Application Information

We are now accepting applications for the 2024-25 NH-VT Schweitzer Fellows. Applications are due on February 5, 2024.


The New Hampshire – Vermont (NH/VT) Schweitzer Fellows Program is a one-year interdisciplinary, mentored Fellowship program that improves health outcomes for under-resourced populations in NH/VT and develops lifelong leaders who are committed to addressing health disparities in the community.  Fellows learn how to:

  • Use their skills and knowledge in real-life situations
  • Become culturally sensitive and compassionate professionals
  • Understand the impact of social and environmental determinants of health
  • Build capacity for, and commitment to, improving the health status of individuals and communities as well as contributing to social change

Upon successful completion of the Fellowship year, Fellows can participate in an alumni network of over 3500 Fellows for Life.


Students must be enrolled in a graduate or professional degree-granting program throughout the Fellowship year (April 2024 - April 2025). 


We are accepting applications from now until February 5, 2024.

NH/VT Schweitzer Fellowship Program Application (2024-25)

Before applying, please read the detailed application information and rubric — the Selection Committee will use this rubric as a guide when assessing Schweitzer Applications.  We expect a rating of 3 will be rare, but want you to have a sense of the focuses we have as we review applications.

There are two versions of the application: one if you are applying as an individual and one if you are applying with a partner.  Be sure to look over the application carefully and familiarize yourself with the information we are requesting. If you would like to draft responses before submitting your application, you can also download a Word template for the individual and partner applications.
