Host Organization Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply for positions in this program?

The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program is open to all graduating Dartmouth seniors in a given year. These talented and motivated students will apply because they are committed to spending a year working for the common good.

Why are there 2 deadlines for Host Organization materials?

January 6 is the final deadline for Host Organizations to submit the Profile & Agreement; November 15 is the early bird/preferred deadline. The earlier you submit your materials, the earlier we can advertise your position and organization to students. We also know that even a couple extra weeks around the end of the year can make a big difference for non-profits in determining next year's budget, etc.

Do we need to provide housing?

No, Fellows are responsible for securing their own housing. Organizations are welcome to provide housing or housing assistance as part of the position, but again, this is not required.

Can we pay more than the minimum stipend?

Yes. We require Host Organizations to pay a minimum stipend of $30,000 plus health insurance at no cost to the fellow.

Can we hire the Fellow on for an additional year or permanent position?

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 a permanent position.

What if there is a problem with my Fellow?

The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program is committed to working with Fellows and Host organizations to resolve conflicts and issues. Host Organizations are encouraged to contact the DPCS office early when an issue arises.

What kinds of projects should fellows be assigned?

DPCS Fellows are talented and motivated Dartmouth graduates. They should be given projects that allow for challenging work experiences, professional development and growth, and serve a need for the Host Organization. If your organization has a number of projects it may like a Fellow to work on, it is fine to list those in the initial application.

Does signing up as a DPCS Fellow host organization commit us to hiring a DPCS Fellow regardless of changes in our staffing needs or financial circumstances?

No. We understand that organizations may experience such difficulties. However, we do ask host organizations to make a "best efforts" commitment to maintaining their participation in the 2014-15 program after the January 6, 2014 "confirmation date" has passed, recognizing that significant time and effort investments will be incurred by the Tucker Foundation and volunteer coordinators after that date.
