The Dickey Center is offering international internships for students to broaden their international perspectives and their understanding of different cultures by carrying out leave-term projects abroad. Applicants must be enrolled Dartmouth College undergraduates returning to campus for at least one term after completing the internship. The vast majority of Dickey Internships take place in an international location.

Field of Internship: The Dickey Center provides international internships for students to broaden their international perspectives and their understanding of different cultures by carrying out leave-term projects.
Course Level: Internship
Internship Provider: The Dickey Center
Internship can be taken at: Abroad

Eligibility: Applicants must be undergraduates returning to campus for at least one term after completing the internship. Returning interns agree to participate as requested in workshops or informational sessions relating to internships in general.

Internship Open for International Students: Yes (That being said, international students are encouraged to explore an internship in a culture and or region that is not their own. Dickey will not fund international students to return to their own country because the goal of the Dickey internship is to encourage cross-cultural experience).

Is this paid internship? No. Budget as much money as you will need, $4,000 (or $15,000) is just the maximum you can receive. Budgeting more or less money will not decrease or increase the likelihood your internship will get funded. BUT, be realistic about your costs and try not to over or underestimate.

Internship Description: Applicants must be undergraduates returning to campus for at least one term after completing the internship. Returning interns agree to participate as requested in workshops or informational sessions relating to internships in general. Applicants are required to submit a 3-5 page report after completion of their project. Applicants should describe not only the kind of work you did, but also tell us something about the organizations that hosted them, the people with whom they worked, and how the experience was meaningful to them. The ideal Dickey International Internship enriches some aspect of your on-campus academic work. An international internship should also develop your ability to communicate comfortably with persons from other cultures, and to understand the processes for addressing international issues that confront nations. Students should ideally be familiar with the language of the country in which they wish to intern.

Number of awards offered: It depends from term to term; summer and winter terms are obviously more competitive because more students are “off.” On average about 40% of applicants are funded.

Internship Duration: Minimum of 8 weeks.

How to Apply: Students have to complete the online application first and then complete and submit the following by post or by e-mail:

  • Written proposal
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Supervisor Statement
  • Transcript

Internship Application Deadline: Applications are due in the Dickey Center office by: October 14, 2015 (for Winter 2016), January 27, 2016 (for Spring 2016) and April 27, 2016 (for Summer 2016).
