Loyola Stritch, Niehoff students receive prestigious Schweitzer Fellowships
Date:4/13/2012

opmental disabilities in the L'Arche International community to take a more active role in their health-care decisions and general well-being.

"Everyone deserves the same opportunities for health and well-being," Cibock said. Once established, she hopes to make her project sustainable beyond the fellowship year. "I anticipate that there might be challenges, so I know it will take dedication, hard work and love."

In addition to the community service projects, other aspects of the Schweitzer Fellows Program will help strengthen the students' skills and provide them with ongoing opportunities for discussion and collaboration with colleagues from a wide variety of allied health professions. "I chose to apply for the Schweitzer Fellowship because I knew that working in a passionate, multidisciplinary team would improve my project's effectiveness," Mendez said.

Competition for the coveted service-learning program was especially intense this year: a record number of 142 students applied and 31 fellows were selected. Since the program began in 1996, 435 fellows have contributed more than 87,000 hours of service expanding the capacities of 170 Chicago community organizations.

"Our Schweitzer fellows' sense of altruism and dedication to service is not only remarkable, but it is clearly sustainable," said Quentin Young, MD, the program's founder and chairman. "The long-term vision for the Schweitzer Fellows Program is to cultivate lifelong leaders in service, and we are aware that a decisive majority of Schweitzer alumni remain engaged with helping poorly resourced communities well beyond their fellowship year."
