The Tucker Fellowship Program gives committed Dartmouth undergraduate students an opportunity to invest in their personal growth and liberal education by serving others in need outside the United States. Tucker Fellows are students who learn by serving others in full-time, self-designed community service projects during their leave terms. Fellows develop an 8-10 week full-time project with an NGO based on a social issue they are passionate about. Past Tucker Fellows have volunteered teaching in urban schools, working with homeless shelters, staffing refugee centers, providing legal aid, serving medical projects abroad and working with physically or emotionally challenged children. Stipends are provided for living expenses.
Our student staff & advisors are happy to help you brainstorm & find an organization to work with! We also have resources here at the Tucker Foundation with lists of organizations our Tucker Fellows have worked with over the past 5+ years.
