Social Impact Non-profit Consulting (SINC)

Program Details

Founded in 2019, SINC is a branch of Dartmouth Center for Social Impact (DCSI) and Dartmouth's first mission-driven consulting group. We aim to support local nonprofit organizations and social enterprises in crafting meaningful business strategies to maximize their impact in the communities they serve. We hope to leverage our passion for and experience in social impact to establish a professional community where students can gain hands-on experience at the intersection of strategy and social impact.


Each fall we have a two-round application process: a collection of 3 short essays followed by a group interview stage. The deadline to submit the essay responses is Saturday September 30th at 11:59 PM, and you can expect to hear back from us by early October with an update on your application.

Partner Quote - Upper Valley Trails Alliance

"Thank you so much for the presentation... You gave us enough to think about that we followed the presentation with an impromptu brainstorming staff meeting immediately afterwards thinking through some of your ideas/proposals... your recommendations acknowledged many of our challenges, and make a lot of sense -- your perspective helped and you have us thinking."

Randy Richardson,
Development Director
