The Albert Schweitzer Junior Fellowship is a nine-month mentorship and service program focused on community health and leadership development. Junior Fellows will work with a community partner to identify unmet health care needs in the local community and develop a service project to address those needs. Additionally, Junior Fellows receive a $1,000 grant to fund their service project.

Check out current fellows' projects:

In order to be considered for a Schweitzer Junior Fellowship, applicants must: 
  • Submit a detailed service project proposal 
  • Identify a potential community partner (the Office of Undergraduate Research can assist with this)
  • Secure a UH Mentor
  • Have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA
  • Be enrolled as a full-time student at UH during the fall and spring semesters of the fellowship

Students are encouraged to work in pairs when developing a proposal and completing the service project. Junior Fellows are required to conduct 100 hours of service over the two-semester fellowship. Junior Fellows are also expected to submit regular activity reports, as well as a final report at the conclusion of the fellowship.
