NCCU Schweitzer Fellowship opportunity!

Good Morning,
Please share this fellowship opportunity with your graduate students.  The deadline is February 1, 2016.  Thank you. 
With our fellowship February 1 deadline approaching, I want to remind you about the Schweitzer Fellowship leadership development opportunity for graduate student in allied health fields. For the last six years, NCCU Schweitzer Fellows have improved the quality of life of low-income North Carolinians, built bridges between the university and community sites, and developed into powerful role models for their peers. NCCU graduate students from Communications Disorders, Social Work, Law, Psychology and Public Administration have participated in the Fellowship.
Schweitzer Fellows are selected annually to undertake this unique, structured experience involving service, mentorship, fellowship and learning. This experience fosters Fellows’ personal and professional development while serving those most in need. Schweitzer Fellows are chosen on a competitive basis from graduate student applicants in a variety of health professional fields and they continue their conventional professional training while participating in the Schweitzer Fellows Program.
Fellows design and carry out a health-related direct service project of at least 200 hours in collaboration with a local community agency under the leadership of a site supervisor and academic mentor of the student’s choice. Fellows receive a $3,000 stipend to underscore the seriousness of their work and to reduce financial barriers that may prevent students from participating. Students can lead the project individually or pair with another graduate student. Paired students split the hours and the stipend.
Some of the recent NCCU Schweitzer Fellows have been able to present their projects at national conferences and have been recognized at graduation for their service work. Several of the NCCU Fellows who are now out in the workforce have professed how the Fellowship has shaped their career aspirations in meeting the needs of underserved populations. Their commitment to vulnerable populations is certainly inspiring.

Our application deadline is February 1 and the application is available on our website:
I would be happy to set up a call to discuss the fellowship with students. Simply have them contact me at or 704-895-6506.
