Paganucci Fellows Program
The Paganucci Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for Dartmouth students to take part in a social entrepreneurship program being offered by the Center for Leadership at the Tuck School of Business. In general, the program supports Tuck’s efforts to study complex social issues and the ways in which businesses can create positive social and financial value; in effect, the "double bottom line." The 2013 Paganucci Fellowships will be targeted at students with an interest in business solutions to societal problems, an aptitude for working collaboratively as part of a consulting-like team, and an appetite for making a difference in the world.
Applications for Summer 2013 internships due end of day Sunday, March 31, 2013
Five Dartmouth students will be selected to become Paganucci Fellows, a prestigious position that provides a summer internship working closely with a project manager and direction from Tuck faculty. Paganucci Fellows will identify, collect, and synthesize information and resources to study a selected issue from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. The emphasis will be on understanding how solutions that require cooperation and collaboration between the business sector, governments, and non-governmental organizations can be formulated and implemented.
The subject matter for 2013 will be reflective of recent projects from past summers. Previously, Fellows have engaged in projects such as:
- Creating an e-learning tool for Global Grassroots in Liberia
- Developing a prototype for Financial Access at Birth in Ghana
- Structuring a roadmap for Financial Inclusion 2020 campaign at Center for Financial Inclusion
For the work over eight (8) weeks (40 hour work week) in the summer of 2013, each Fellow will be paid $5,000.
