Overview

The Tucker Foundation provides stipends and educational advising for full-time (40 hours per week), leave-term (8-10 weeks), direct community service opportunities in the domestic U.S. and abroad. Tucker also provides Post-Graduate opportunities that may range from 8 months to one year following graduation.

Tucker Fellows and Dartmouth Partners in Community Service (DPCS) interns work for non-profit and/or non-governmental organizations, exploring and understanding a commitment to service through a variety of professional and academic fields. In addition to direct community service, fellowships and internships may include research, advocacy, public policy, cross-cultural education, and civic engagement. DPCS is an alumni-supported program overseen by an alumni board and its interns are provided with an alumni mentor. The Tucker Fellowships program is internationally focused, with an emphasis on global learning and sustainable service. Alternative Spring Break (ASB) service trips, faith-based fellowships, post-graduate fellowships (Olga Gruss Lewiin and Richard D. Lombard), community-based research and social justice and civic forums are additional program options.

Student doing medical work

Annually, approximately 200 students are involved in a department or alumni-supported program, of which 65 are involved in a fellowship or internship.  The program provides approximately 30,000 hours of service annually.  The department's staff strongly values offering a holistic, student-centered, educational and academic approach to working with Dartmouth students.  Through their experiences, students are encouraged and challenged to think critically and act with compassion; to work with communities, reciprocally sharing knowledge and solutions to often diverse and complex, local, national and global community needs.

Financial support, mentoring and advising, individual and group debriefings, reflection and next step plans, as well as opportunities for public presentation and ambassadorial roles, are supported.  Every fellow and intern is offered advising support to intentionally integrate their service experience with their personal, academic and career goals.

Tucker fellow in India

"My fellowship experiences, in union with the Tucker activities, were the seed of social activism and the desire for change and human dignity. They are still a piece of my mosaic of understanding, which is continually influenced and inspired by my current peace and justice work."

- Dartmouth Alumnus

"The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of bold projects and new ideas. Rather, it will belong to those who can blend passion, reason, and courage in a personal commitment to the great enterprises and ideals of … society."

- Robert Francis Kennedy
