Student Opportunities

The Institute of Arctic Studies at the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding offers several opportunities that engage students in Arctic Studies and the Environment.

For Dartmouth Undergraduates

All Dartmouth undergraduates who have an interest in Arctic Studies are encouraged to apply to the Stefansson Fellowship and/or our partnered internships. These opportunities are designed to allow students to engage in the Arctic. Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, we will be supporting remote internships in place of travel-based opportunities. The student must be on leave-term status with the college during the time of the internship. Click here to learn more
