About the Program
Senior Fellowships involve projects for which the intellectual scope and breadth of imagination goes beyond that which can be accomplished by taking courses offered in the existing curriculum.
Senior fellows are not required to enroll in classes during their senior year nor are they required to complete a major. Students who plan to finish a major in addition to the Senior Fellowship should be aware that they must also complete their major department's culminating experience requirement.
The fellowship year comprises three terms of registered enrollment, at least one of which must be spent primarily in residence.
Senior Fellows may not use funds provided by Dartmouth College for personal gain. For example, if the product of the Senior Fellowship is a book, a Fellow may not use Dartmouth College funds to print copies of the book to be sold for profit. The Fellow may, however, use other funds either during or after the Fellowship to print and sell the books.
The Senior Fellows program is supported by the Kaminsky Family Fund at Dartmouth College.
