Hopkins Center Fellows

Hop Fellows Program

The Hopkins Center Fellowship Program values student agency. Overseen by The Office of Fellowships and Student Initiatives and Staff Mentors, its experiential learning core calls students to gain transferable skills via work at The Hopkins Center of the Arts, build capacity by generating student arts-based events, and immerse in career development and artistic excursions.

Value proposition
Why does The Hop Fellowship at Dartmouth's Hopkins Center for the Arts exist? We exist to empower the creative life within every student, fostering a sense of belonging and growth. Through our passion for art, we build equitable, supportive and vibrant platforms where student artists are vital, celebrated and engaged with our Dartmouth community.

• Community
• Equity & Justice
