» Schweitzer Scholarship Recipients

Each academic year Chapman University awards scholarships to university students in the name of Albert Schweitzer. These scholarships are offered through the generosity of the Marjorie Mosher Schmidt Foundation in honor of Valerie Scudder, former trustee of Chapman University. The scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated a record of excellence in both their academic work and their commitment to a life of service. For additional information, contact the Albert Schweitzer Institute or the Chapman University Financial Aid Office.

2018 - 2019 Recipient
Samara Fitzgerald is a junior from Chicago, Illinois, majoring in Creative Producing with a Business Administration minor. In addition to her commitment to academic excellence, Sammy has brought her “Letters to Santa” project to the Chapman campus, this year involving students, faculty, staff and community members in answering 1200 letters from Orange County school children in need and even getting President Struppa to act as Santa in the distribution of gifts. Schweitzer encouraged us all to discover our own such “project of love” in which to invest our humanity, and Sammy epitomizes this ideal, even as she does the pursuit of learning.
