Dale Ogar
Schweitzer Fellows Program Director

Each year the Bay Area Chapter of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation awards a year-long fellowship to health professions graduate students who are committed to community service in the spirit of Albert Schweitzer. Please consider joining the distinguished legacy of Touro University California students who have received this fellowship.


The Bay Area Schweitzer Fellows Program is now recruiting applicants for the 2016-2017 year. This Fellowship is designed for students who want to create opportunities for health-related service within their communities.

Fellowship Period: April 1, 2016 – April 1, 2017

Application Deadline: February 1, 2016

Responsibilities: Each Schweitzer Fellow designs and carries out a community service project of at least 200 hours of direct service, beyond their normal course requirements. Fellows also work as a group to organize one public outreach activity each year.

Eligibility: Students enrolled in graduate and/or professional degree granting programs from institutions in the Bay Area are eligible to apply. Students must be enrolled from April 2016 – April 2017. Students graduating earlier in 2016 may apply, but must receive prior approval from the Program Director before applying.

Applicants must be available to attend a two-night (weekend) orientation retreat in April 2016 (TBD) and the annual Celebration of Service in May 2017.
