Fellows for Life

  • Overview


The Schweitzer Fellowship itself is a program that to its core drives growth and development in both a personal and professional sense. With its collaborative and interprofessional nature, it was an instrumental opportunity to build a network of driven, like-minded individuals. All in all, I hope to utilize the connections made through the Schweitzer Fellowship for the rest of my career. – Christianah Ogunleye, 2018-2019 Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellow

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
