The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences

Class of 2002

First-Year Fellow Mentor: Lauren Kennedy '02

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 students are selected and placed in fellowships with Dartmouth alumni in Washington, D.C., who are willing to take on a significant mentoring role.

"Through the Rockefeller Center's First-Year Fellows program, I have had the privilege of mentoring Dartmouth students who are excited about public policy and eager to become engaged in the work that occurs in our nation's capital. Fellows arrive exceptionally well-prepared to contribute from day one. They are quick learners who ask smart questions, offer sharp insights, and consistently demonstrate a level of professionalism that exceeds expectations. These qualities make it easy for me to agree to mentor Fellows year after year and to gladly serve as a resource for them both during and after the Fellowship." --Lauren Kennedy '02, U.S. Department of Education

“I loved my time at Dartmouth, and remain grateful to the College for giving me a terrific foundation for a career in national security and public service. This program is the perfect win-win: my organization gets some great talent, and the Fellows get a worthwhile and challenging experience early on in their careers. I'm grateful for the opportunity to help support the next generation of service-driven students at Big Green.” -Michael Breen '02
