Social Impact Internship Funding

Social Impact Internship Funding

Design your own in-person internship experience. 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 years 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. 

Advising is highly recommended before submitting an application. Meet with our staff or student director of internships to build an effective project plan.
