The Class of 1982 Upper Valley Social Entrepreneurship Fellowship was created and launched on the occasion of the 25th Reunion of the Class of 1982. The fellowship honors the Upper Valley community for its contributions making Dartmouth the special place that it is. By directing their resources to the non-profit organizations and the people of this community, the Class of 1982 took this opportunity to give something back and to ensure that Dartmouth students continue to enjoy and benefit from this unique environment today and in the future.
The Fellowship is awarded annually to one Dartmouth undergraduate and supports the establishment of new, ongoing initiatives that expand economic and social opportunities for low-income people in the Upper Valley region on a sustainable basis. Projects should emphasize program entrepreneurship, revenue-generation or cost recovery, or community outreach and engagement. The grant covers one full-time leave term of immersion at the fellowship site and several terms of part-time involvement. Fellows must collaborate with a local non-profit organization or school. As the Social Entrepreneurship Fellowship program develops, we will develop learning ties with the Tuck School of Business and with the Upper Valley Non-Profit Exchange.
The Fellowship is funded at approximately $6,500 over a 4-8 term period; fellowship terms of involvement are flexible to meet individual Dartmouth Plans. Deadline is February 14, 2014 at 5PM.
