The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship program helps connect motivated Dartmouth graduates with meaningful one-year Fellowship experiences at host organizations in Washington, D.C. and New York City. We partner with an array of organizations -- including non-profits, public and government agencies, and for-profit organizations with a public mission -- in the fields of social work, education, health, law, social entrepreneurship and more. The program is seeking organizations that are addressing significant social issues, are innovative and effective, and are dedicated to providing a fellow with significant responsibility and excellent supervision. Participating organizations are not just vocational partners, but also partners in developing civic leadership.
Why Do Organizations Participate?
"Our Fellow's future career plans aligned closely with HealthCare Chaplaincy's mission which was an win-win situation. HealthCare Chaplaincy tapped into Alex's intelligence, interests and eagerness on various projects, and Alex was able to get an in-depth look at the health care industry, during this extremely critical juncture of reform." -- Claire Haaga Altman, HealthCare Chaplaincy (New York, NY)
"Delia Gorman, our Dartmouth fellow, is smart, ethical, hard working and creative, so it's been a win-win for all involved! We've offered her a permanent position with us, so we're looking forward to the great work that lies ahead with her on our team." -- Kristin Brand, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City
