Dalrymple Community Engagement Fellowship
Dalrymple Community Engagement Fellowship:
Thanks to the support of a generous donor, UNH Cooperative Extension offers two Dalrymple Community Engagement Fellowships each year to UNH graduate students who seek to gain experience working with community stakeholders in one of the following areas: community development, community engagement, economic development, business retention and expansion, youth development, and natural resources stewardship. Each Fellowship carries with it a stipend of $5,000 for approximately 300 hours of work. The opportunities vary from year to year, but previous fellows have worked on project such as:
- Helping NH’s commercial fishing industry identify and implement opportunities to market direct 'underloved' species of seafood to consumers and retailers
- Support of a local officials and citizens of the City of Franklin, NH to develop and implement a future vision for the downtown.
- Development and delivery of program that provides single mothers and their children at a transitional housing facility with an opportunity to build computer literacy skills.
The specific projects assigned to each Fellow will be identified throughout the year and will be contingent upon on the needs identified by UNH Cooperative Extension and other UNH partners. The timeframe for each Fellowship is flexible, depending on the nature of the project and the availability of the applicant.
New applications for Dalrymple Fellows will be sought in January of 2017 and will be posted to this website. Meanwhile, if you would like to learn more about the Fellowship, please contact Charlie French at 603-862-0316 or email him at Charlie.French@unh.edu
