Dalrymple Graduate Fellow: Qualitative Research

Who is eligible? Any student enrolled in a graduate program at the University of New Hampshire. 

About the fellowship: The Dalrymple Fellowship seeks to engage UNH graduate students in supporting Cooperative Extension’s community economic development work, while also providing the student with hands-on experience working with community stakeholders. 

The fellow will conduct a qualitative research project designed to evaluate outcomes from our Community Engagement Academy and Main Street Academy. Designed for professionals, community leaders and volunteers, our academies are embedded in community and teach participants topics such as community engagement, economic development, leadership and volunteers, strategies for strengthening main street, action planning, nature economy, and the role of arts in revitalization. We will be evaluating participants who have attended our academies that have been held since 2016. The fellow will lead data collection through multiple methods which may include interviews, internet research, survey, and ripple effect mapping; transcription; data analysis using NVivo; and writing a final report detailing findings.

Length of fellowship: Spring semester 2020, flexible start date. Competitive stipend.
