Albert Schweitzer Award

Albert Schweitzer Award

The Albert Schweitzer Award is given annually to a graduating HSPH 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 HSPH.

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 email your nominations by April 11, 2014. Nominees will be asked to submit any additional information, such as a resume, by April 18, 2014. Members of the selection committee will interview finalists.
