Application Information

Applications are now open for 2021-2022 Schweitzer Fellows.

Applications are due February 8, 2021

OVERVIEW

The New Hampshire – Vermont (NH/VT)Schweitzer Fellows Program is a one-year interdisciplinary, mentored Fellowship program that improves health outcomes for underserved 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 caregivers
  • 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
  • Work collaboratively and across disciplines in pursuit of a common goal

Upon successful completion of the initial Fellowship year, Fellows have the opportunity to participate in an alumni network of Fellows for Life – an interdisciplinary group of professionals who are dedicated and skilled in meeting the health needs of underserved communities.

ELIGIBILITY

Students enrolled in graduate or professional degree-granting programs from any accredited academic institution in the geographic area may apply. While the applicant's field of study does not have to be traditionally health-related, his/her proposed service project must focus on health and/or the social determinants of health. Past Fellows have addressed health from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. Applicants must be enrolled throughout the Fellowship year (April 2021-April 2022).
