Great Issues Scholars
Spend your first year on campus exploring the vital international issues of the day with visiting dignitaries, Dartmouth experts, and your fellow students.
Great Issues Scholars participate in a year-long series of highly interactive events aimed at enhancing their understanding of the world and current international events. The program is a unique opportunity to connect with faculty, visiting experts, and fellow students around complex global issues.
Only students in their first year of undergraduate study at Dartmouth are eligible to apply to the program. (Global Village residents who have already been selected as "Great Issues Scholars in Residence" do not need to apply.)
Scholars work and learn together while they gather for small-group events around specific themes such as global health, climate change, gender in politics, international development, and regional security challenges.
Selected students are expected to attend a minimum of twelve (12) Great Issues Scholars events over the course of the year (at least 4 per term). For more information, visit the Overview and FAQ pages.
The application period for the 2016-17 program has closed. Please check back this spring to learn how to apply to the 2017-18 program.
