Schweitzer Fellowship Informational Meeting

Each year, the NH/VT Schweitzer Fellows Program selects approximately 25 students from multiple schools including UNH School of Law. These Schweitzer Fellows partner with community-based organizations to design and implement a yearlong service project that addresses the needs of underserved members of their community.

The project is performed under the guidance of a mentor at the community site and a faculty mentor at the Law school. Fellows also meet together as a group and become part of a network of Fellows for Life that will offer support and guidance throughout their careers.

The NH/VT Schweitzer Fellowship Program is one of 12 Schweitzer Programs across the US dedicated to developing a pipeline of emerging professionals who will enter the workforce with the skills and commitment necessary to address unmet needs of vulnerable members of our community.

The program is open to all enrolled students until March of 2015. Fellows receive a $2,000 stipend which is split $1,000 per semester.

We hope to you will be able to join us for this informational meeting.
