Build an International Internship

International Experiences with The Dickey Center

The Dickey Center provides opportunities for students to broaden their international perspectives and their understanding of different cultures by undertaking leave-term projects abroad. Gain new international perspectives by living and working abroad as a Dickey International Intern. 


The ideal Dickey International Internship enriches an aspect of your on-campus academic work. An international internship should also develop your ability to communicate comfortably with individuals from other cultures and to understand the processes for addressing international issues that confront nations. Students ideally should be familiar with the language of the country in which they want to intern.

Applicants must be enrolled Dartmouth College undergraduates returning to campus for at least one term after completing the internship. Returning interns agree to participate in workshops or informational sessions related to internships. Following completion of the internship, students are required to submit a selection of photos from the experience and a 3-5 page report describing not only the kind of work done, but also something about the organizational host, the people with whom the intern worked, and how the experience was meaningful.
