Hop Fellows

Hopkins Center Fellows Program

Considering a career in the arts? The Hopkins Center Fellows Program allows Dartmouth students to explore the field of arts administration and grow as leaders by taking on responsibilities in various Hop departments, under the mentorship of Hop staff.

Hop Fellowships run from September through May, are open to seniors and juniors and are paid positions. Fellows variously focus on performing arts curation, education, marketing and management and also assist the Hop’s workshops in jewelry, woodshop and ceramics. Fellows meet weekly as a group to share their learning and plan Fellows-led events to engage students in the arts. Hop Fellows end the year with a capstone trip to the arts mecca of New York where they attend performances and network with arts professionals and VIPs.

Fellowship Components
Professional Development – Be embedded in a Hop department based on an assigned track.
Weekly Lunches – Attend weekly lunch meetings with other fellows to hear from arts and arts administration experts.
Leadership Development – Plan, produce and sponsor arts-focused social events to engage Hop student employees and Dartmouth students at large in learning more about the Hop’s and Dartmouth’s arts offerings.
Content Marketing – Contribute to the Hop’s blog and social media platforms.
Professional Engagement – Network with arts professionals and VIPs on and off campus.
Capstone Trip – Experience the arts in New York City.

Fellowship Requirements 
Must be a junior or senior Dartmouth student who is interested in arts administration. Must be on campus during the fall, winter and spring trimesters and able to work all three consecutive terms.

Hop Fellows Inspiration

Valuable experience

Interning at the Hop was one of the most significant experiences I had at Dartmouth. The skills I learned and the relationships that this internship fostered have direct ties to my current job at a performing arts center. Emily Neely ’17
