For Host Organizations

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

  • Access a talented applicant pool for your position: The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program recruits talented Dartmouth students who are committed to spending a year working for the common good.
  • Pre-screened applicant pool: From the initial pool of applicants, we select only the most qualified applicants to refer to your organization. This occurs through a thorough review of application materials and an interview process. This will save your organization time and money in recruiting and pre-screening of applicants. Your organization makes the final decision on hires.
  • Fellows receive outside support and educational opportunities: The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program engages students in outside learning and networking opportunities to help build skills, confidence and leadership. In addition, each DPCS Fellow is matched with a Dartmouth alumni mentor who provides on-going guidance and support for the fellow throughout his or her internship. Finally, each city has an Alumni Area Coordinator and an Alumni Area Committee. These are volunteers devoted to ensuring a successful program and quality experience for both Fellows and Host Organizations
  • Be part of developing the next generation of civic leaders: The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program provides opportunities for graduating seniors committed to the common good to develop knowledge and leadership skills that will advance the public interest sector while they serve as fellows and in the future.
  • Flexibility: The DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program allows organizations the flexibility to hire a skilled employee for a one year term. This is especially useful if your organization has a short term need or specific project. Organizations are also permitted to make long-term employment offers to fellows after their fellowship year, thus taking advantage of the DPCS Post-Graduate Fellowship Program for longer term staffing needs.
