The Paganucci Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for Dartmouth undergraduates to take part in a global experiential learning program offered at Tuck. The program supports Tuck’s efforts to study complex social issues and the ways businesses can create positive social and financial value: in effect, the “double bottom line.” It is targeted at students with an interest in social entrepreneurship, an aptitude for working collaboratively as part of a consulting-like team, and an appetite for making a difference in the world.

The 2022 Paganucci Fellows will complete the Tuck Bridge Program and then focus their work on climate change misinformation and disinformation.
In 2021, the Paganucci Fellows Program was held entirely online. The team of five divided their time between the Tuck Business Bridge Program and a project with Perú Champs. During Tuck Bridge, Paganucci fellows were introduced to core business disciplines such as marketing, strategy, and accounting, culminating in a final presentation to industry executives and faculty. For their project, the fellows worked with Perú Champs, a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower talented, underprivileged children through access to high-quality education. In addition, the fellows participated in a series of professional and personal development activities as part of an integrated leadership framework. Finally, separate from the work with Perú Champs, one fellow conducted an independent project with Tuck faculty to make recommendations to further develop the alumni network of Paganucci fellows.
