Dickey International Internships

About the Internships

Cross-cultural experiences are truly life-changing. International travel challenges you to examine your worldview and pushes you to question assumptions about yourself and others.

The Dickey Center offers a variety of funded opportunities for individuals to engage with the world. Some of our offerings support established relationships with international organizations. You can also create your own experience with an organization that fits your interests, skills, and timeframe.  

Email Peter Jenkinson with any questions or to schedule a time to meet!  

Requirements

The ideal Dickey International Internship enriches an aspect of your on-campus academic work.  You may choose to undertake your remote internship with an organization based domestically or abroad, so long as the proposed work is internationally focused.

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reason (in good standing or not), they are not eligible for Dickey Center funding during the terms in which they are withdrawn.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.
