Experiential Learning. At Dartmouth, you’ll have opportunities to gain real-world experience that complements your studies and prepares you for success after college. And with Dartmouth’s flexible academic calendar, you’ll have an edge to participate in internships throughout the year and around the globe.
Dartmouth’s Center for Professional Development (CPD) provides comprehensive career guidance and support to undergraduates, from your first year onward. The CPD helps students obtain internships through one-on-one advising and resources that include social networking platforms and databases that provide access to thousands of internships—some of which are offered only to Dartmouth students.
Thousands of Dartmouth alumni actively volunteer to advise students in their internship, career, and graduate school explorations. The Dartmouth Career Network helps you tap into their expertise and make connections during your time on campus and beyond.
Use one of your leave terms—even as soon as the summer after your first year at Dartmouth—to work directly in community service. The foundation offers support through Tucker Fellowships for internationally based projects, and DPCS internships (a domestic program that incorporates the support and insight of a local alumni mentor) provide funding for student-designed service-based projects in under-resourced communities.
If it’s public policy that calls you, the Rockefeller Center is your internship connection. The Center helps students prepare for leave-term internship experiences through leadership development programs and advice on searching for internships—and has internship funding available as well. The First-Year Fellows Program, a competitive opportunity, offers preparation, support, and an entrée to an alumni-mentored internship in Washington, D.C. the summer following your first year at Dartmouth.
The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS)/Neukom grant program can support your leave-term experience exploring the world of information technology, whether your goal is to gain work experience, advance research skills, or simply become familiar with a new area of IT.
John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding
International experiences and cross-cultural perspectives are hallmarks of the internships supported by the Dickey Center. The possibilities are wide open: you find an opportunity that enriches your on-campus academic work and then apply for funding.
