Bridging the Curricular and Co-Curricular: The Rockefeller Center Model of Civic Engagement
Unformatted Document Text:  Rockefeller Public Affairs and Public Policy Internship Grants are designed to enable students to work in a non-paying, non-profit or governmental agency conducting public policy research, public policy analysis, issue evaluation, or activities that help shape and determine public policy—whether at the local, state or national level. Grants of up to $3,000, with additional funds available to students on financial aid, are awarded to students through a competitive application and interview process each term. Each academic year, between 40 and 50 students receive internships grants from the Rockefeller Center. Several of the internships are endowed by alumni and friends of the Rockefeller Center. In those cases in which a student is awarded a “named” internship grant, the student is put in contact with the funding source in order to express thanks for the award and to update the source on the internship experience. 3. The First-Year Initiative The Rockefeller Center launched the First-Year Initiative in June of 2007 for students in the Class of 2010 for Dartmouth students. Its main objective is to build significant curricular and co-curricular skills and experience in select members of each successive Dartmouth class early enough in their Dartmouth careers so that they can grow and apply this knowledge in the subsequent three years. In pursuit of this objective, first- year students are encouraged to begin their Public Policy Minors by enrolling in a signature introductory course on the policy making process (PBPL 5) in the winter term of their first year at Dartmouth and to complete the methods prerequisite to the Minor during their first year as well. The Center offers two special opportunities for select students who excel in these courses. The first is to make available summer internship opportunities specifically dedicated to first-year students from Dartmouth. The second is to provide a special first- year Civic Skills Training session in June for this group, alongside the regular training planned for upperclassmen and women. Students who have completed the First-Year 9
