SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA ALBERT SCHWEITZER FELLOWSHIP
Founded in 2006, the San Francisco Bay Area Fellows Program is one of fourteen Schweitzer program sites across the U. S. dedicated to developing a pipeline of emerging professionals who enter the workforce with the skills and commitment necessary to address unmet health needs. Bay Area Schweitzer Fellows are competitively chosen from graduate students enrolled at major universities in the area. They come from a variety of academic fields and as Schweitzer Fellows, they work tirelessly to address existing health disparities throughout the region.

Since 2007, More than 130 Schweitzer Fellows have provided over 26,000 hours of service to the Bay Area's most vulnerable communities. Partnering with over 90 community-based organizations in 6 Bay Area counties, these Fellows have addressed a wide variety of unmet health needs by creating and carrying out yearlong projects with direct service at their core. Examples include the following initiatives created by past Fellows:
For a complete listing of past and present Fellows' service projects please see Fellows and Projects. At the end of the initial Fellowship year, Fellows carry their commitment to meeting the health needs of underserved people forward as members of the Schweitzer Fellows for Life alumni network, now more than 3,500 strong. The San Francisco Bay Area program is funded entirely by charitable donations and grants from our generous sponsors. Your gift will help make a difference in the lives of those most in need in our communities.
