Guidelines for mid-year and final reports for Dartmouth-funded fellowships

Report deadlines

Guidelines for mid-year and final reports for Dartmouth-funded fellowships for graduate study and postgraduate projects. Recipients of the Dartmouth Senior Law Prizes are not required to submit reports (but are welcome to do so if they choose).

Mid-year reports: 

  • Due by January 1
  • Required for those whose awards are being paid in two installments (this is generally the Reynolds, Priest, Brooks)
  • Stipends for the second half of the award year will not be issued until the mid-year reports are received

Final reports:

  • Due by June 1
  • Required for all of those awarded fellowships for graduate study and postgraduate projects

Report guidelines

Your report should be 1-2 pages and include the following:

  • What you have accomplished in your project or graduate study program thus far 
  • How the funding from your award enabled your accomplishments
  • How you navigated unexpected challenges along the way (if you encountered any)
  • How your project or graduate study has impacted or will impact your future academic and/or career plans

You will receive an email from "fellowship advising" 2-4 weeks before the due date for the report. The email will include instructions for submitting your report. 


You are welcome to submit photos with your reports. If you prefer that your photos are not used on the Fellowship Advising website, please let us know. 

Technical Recommendations

  • Always take the highest resolution possible for your camera.
  • If you have the option of saving photos in your camera as either a tiff or a jpg, select jpg (it uses less space).
  • Save photos to Dropbox or Shutterfly to maintain quality/resolution and to facilitate sharing. Do not share your photos by inserting them into word docs or on social media sites, as this reduces the resolution.

Subject Matter

  • Ask permission before taking your shot! 
  • Get close to your subject; consider how you are framing your shot.
  • We want photos of you in action! This means photos of you conducting your research/studies and exploring your surroundings.
  • When taking photos in clinical settings, do not take any photos of patients in which you could recognize the person (no direct shots of faces or other identifying information/features). Be sure to ask permission of both the patient as well as the staff before taking your shot.

Special considerations for photos of children

  • These guidelines are to prevent misuse of these images online
  • If you are taking photos of children, please ask parents/teachers first
  • No full-body shots of children that include head-toe view
  • It is preferable to take group shots of children together or children with an adult where the children's bodies are partially obscured
