Dartmouth Partners in Community Service (DPCS) Graduate Fellows Program seeks host organization partners for 2014-15
Host organizations employ talented, service-oriented, and highly motivated Dartmouth graduates in one or two year Fellowships following graduation. Fellowship positions must involve explicit community or public service functions (direct contact with the public not required)-- in such fields as social work, education, housing, economic development, health, law, international aid, and more.
The program recruits graduating Dartmouth seniors, screens them against host organizations’ job criteria, vets them via a highly competitive on-campus interview process, and then recommends 2 to 4 top candidates for the host organization to interview and select. Selected fellows are matched with local Dartmouth alumni mentors and attend monthly educational and career development seminars-- which helps keep them motivated and can smooth out early career bumps in the road.
Host organizations are asked to commit to a year's employment, with a salary (generally, at least $30K) and health benefits. Organizations may post an opening for a DPCS fellow while also posting it via their own personnel systems.
Host Organization Application Deadlines:
· November 15, 2013 is the "early bird deadline." Meeting this date ensures that Dartmouth seniors will see your posting before they go home for the long winter break.
· January 6, 2014 is the "final" or "confirmation" deadline for assured program participation.
