Fellows for Life

  • Overview
  • Events


“The most rewarding part about being a Fellow for Life is getting to meet so many other people in related disciplines who are equally committed to working with the underserved.”
-Emily Hendel, 2003-04 Schweitzer Fellow

Fellows for Life at the 2013 Schweitzer Leadership Conference

Since 2006, the Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows Program has provided programming for our "Fellows for Life," alumni of the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship living in the Chicago area.

The Chicago “Fellows for Life” program aims to:
  • Further engage alumni in the ideals of Albert Schweitzer
  • Provide opportunities for networking between the alumni
  • Provide opportunities for community engagement
  • Promote leadership and professional development
  • Provide a sense of camaraderie amongst a group of like-minded individuals
