Columbus-Athens Schweitzer Fellows Program

The Columbus-Athens Schweitzer Fellows Program​, most often referred to as Columbus-Athens ASF (Albert Schweitzer Fellowship), is one of 13 ASF sites around the US. The ASF facilitates service projects to benefit the Columbus and Athens communities, and simultaneously develops emerging professionals who have the skills to address unmet health-related needs throughout their careers.

Columbus-Athens ASF is a growing consortium of eleven colleges on The Ohio State University campus, three colleges on the Ohio University campus, and Trinity Lutheran Seminary, location in Columbus. Each year cohorts of between 12 and 20 Schweitzer Fellows are selected from the colleges to embark on year-long, mentored community service projects. They join approximately 250 peers representing some of the finest universities in the country carrying out projects targeting vulnerable and underserved populations.

Graduate and professional students are eligible to apply for this prestigious community service fellowship. The application period is October 15 – February 15. The Fellowship year begins in April and ends the following May. Fellows complete a minimum 200 hour service project and attend retreats and monthly meetings.​​​​
