Social Impact Internship Funding

Social Impact Internship Funding

Design your own remote internship. Work to support the mission of a remarkable nonprofit, make an impact on an under-resourced community, advance yourself professionally, and receive first-rate mentorship from an alumni mentor. Pick an issue to engage more deeply or a skill you'd like to master and design your internship around that aspiration.

For over 25 year Dartmouth Partners in Community Service (DPCS) has provided funding and mentorship for students wishing to pursue unpaid internships with domestic nonprofits serving under-resourced communities. Due to COVID-19, we are pivoting our fall internships to remote internships. Should a student choose to work in and self-design an internship in their home community, they may include an in-person component to their internship. Completely remote internships are highly encouraged.

Make an appointment with our staff and student directors who are happy to work closely with you to craft a robust and meaningful remote social impact internship over your fall off-term. Use the map below as inspiration and a starting point for researching possible nonprofit community partners.
