The Houston-Galveston Schweitzer Fellows Program

The Houston-Galveston Schweitzer Fellows Program seeks to develop Leaders in Service who are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of underserved communities during their Fellowship year and beyond.  Schweitzer Fellows design and implement their own 200-hour community service projects that address local unmet health needs, while also participating in monthly Fellowship activities focused on leadership development.  We select a diverse group of 15 students each year from multiple schools and academic disciplines, including medicine, biology, education, engineering, law, nursing, optometry, public health, religion, and social work, among others.
