The ideal Dickey International Internship enriches an aspect of your on-campus academic work. For Stefansson Fellowship Applicants, you may choose to undertake your remote internship with an organization based domestically or abroad, so long as the proposed work is internationally focused on Arctic Studies.
All applicants must be enrolled Dartmouth College undergraduates on a registered leave term, and must be returning to Dartmouth for at least one term after completing the internship. If students withdraw from the College for any reason (in good standing or not), they are not eligible for Dickey Center funding during the terms in which they are withdrawn. If students are accepted for a Dickey Center internship in a given term but withdraw from the College during that term, they must contact the Dickey Center immediately. See the College webpage on withdrawals for more information.
Returning interns agree to participate in workshops or informational sessions related to internships. Following completion of the internship, students are required to submit 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.
