Albert Schweitzer Award

Albert Schweitzer Award

The Albert Schweitzer Award is given annually to a graduating Harvard Chan student whose past work and current activities have been marked by a “reverence for life” and who has sought, as expressed by Schweitzer, to “make my life my argument.” The selection committee gives special emphasis to service activities undertaken by nominees during the course of their studies at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Nominations should be in the form of a letter of no more than 300 words, describing in detail the relevant work and qualities of the nominee. Please submit your nominations by April 17. Nominees will be asked to submit any additional information, such as a resume, by April 24. Members of the selection committee will interview finalists.
