Frequently Asked Questions for Students

Who is eligible to apply for positions in this program?

The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship welcomes all graduating Dartmouth college seniors (including international students) to apply no matter your major or concentration, past experience, or specific skills. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens should contact their advisor in the Office of Visa and Immigration Services as soon as possible to discuss visa requirements.

Can I participate in corporate recruiting through Career Services and also apply for the DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship program?

Yes. The DPCS Post-Grad Fellowship program is a unique collaboration between the Tucker Foundation, Career Services, and Alumni. Both corporate recruiting and the DPCS Post-Grad Fellowship Program use the DartBoard application system online to search for jobs and apply.

Does the program provide housing or transportation to/from Dartmouth and/or my permanent address?

No, fellows are responsible for securing their own housing, as well as transportation to their host city.

Can I stay to work an additional year after my fellowship ends or get a permanent position through the DPCS Post-Grad Fellowship program?

Yes, after the fellow completes their year in the program, the Host Organization is welcome to ask the fellow to stay on for one additional year as a DPCS Fellow, or offer the fellow a permanent position. The DPCS Post-Grad Fellowship program is an outstanding way for recent graduates to network with employers and alumni in careers for the common good.

What kind of positions will be offered?

We will have a variety of positions available at organizations working for the common good. Organizations will range in focus from education and youth services to public policy, environmental issues, public health, and legal issues. Positions for the coming year will be listed beginning in late fall. To view position descriptions, log into the recruiting section of Career Service’s DartBoard, and search by keyword “DPCS”.

Do you apply for specific fellowship positions?

Yes, you may apply for up to three DPCS Post-Grad Fellowships. For each position you will submit a common application, a cover letter and a resume.

How and when do I apply?

Applicants must submit an application through DartBoard by January 21, 2013 (MLK Day). Please see the application and selection process page to learn more about the process, upcoming events, and important dates.

When do fellowships begin?

Fellowships usually begin between June and September and end between May and August of the following year, making the typical duration 10-12 months long. Organizations that require specific start dates are asked to provide that information in the position description. Start dates should be negotiated before applicants and organizations commit to employment.

Are these paid fellowship opportunities?

Yes, Host Organizations are required to provide a minimum salary of $30,000 plus health coverage.

I’ve already completed a Tucker DPCS Internship or Tucker Fellowship during my time at Dartmouth, am I still eligible to apply?

Yes, in fact students who have completed a leave-term Tucker Fellowship or DPCS Internship demonstrate the type of commitment to the public good that the DPCS Post-Grad Fellowship program strives for and you are encouraged to apply.
