The Rockefeller Center's First-Year Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for you to combine the academic study of public policy with real-world experience. Here's how you participate:

  • Take "Public Policy 5: Introduction to Public Policy" during the Winter Term.
  • Take a statistical methods course (e.g. ECON 10, SOCY 10, MSS 15, GOVT 10) during the Fall, Winter or Spring terms of your first year.
  • Apply to be a First-Year Fellow during the Spring term of your Freshman year.
  • Participate in the special Civic Skills Training after Spring Term.
  • Intern in Washington, DC, during the summer after your first year in a congressional office, policy think tank, executive branch agency, or advocacy organization with support from the Rockefeller Center, and Dartmouth alumni serving as mentors.
  • Complete final report and program evaluations at the end of your internship experience.
  • Attend a debriefing session when you return to Hanover.
