The Class of 1964 Policy Research Shop (PRS) is a student-staffed, faculty-mentored research enterprise that allows students to engage directly in the public policymaking processes in Vermont and New Hampshire by providing valuable, non-partisan research on critical issues facing each state.
Public Policy Programs
Undergraduates who minor in public policy often describe it as the “perfect way” to better understand how policy affects all aspects of society—from urban development, international relations, and technological change to health care, education, and the law.
The First-Year Fellows program is a unique opportunity for first-year students to engage meaningfully in public policy early in their Dartmouth careers. Each year, around 20 first-year students are selected and placed in fellowships with Dartmouth alumni in Washington, D.C.
The Rockefeller Internships program provides resources for undergraduate students interested in leave-term internships in the fields of public policy, public affairs, and social entrepreneurship.
The Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Program sends up to four Dartmouth undergraduates per term to Oxford University’s Keble College.
