Why Dartmouth's Program Is Special
- Dartmouth, the 9th-oldest university in the United States (founded in 1769), has an outstanding academic reputation as one of the Ivy League schools.
- The chemistry department occupies a modern (opened in 1992), spacious building with state-of-the-art research facilities and equipment.
- The department is small, with a student:professor ratio of about 2:1, so students receive personal attention.
- Stipend support (currently $24,552 for the 2011-2012 year, with small increases expected yearly) is provided to all students. The stipend is guaranteed for five years as long as satisfactory progress is made towards the degree. In addition, tuition is waived, and health insurance is subsidized.
- Typical time required to complete the Ph.D. degree is five years.
- Graduate classes and research projects are available in organic, biological, inorganic, organometallic, materials, physical, and theoretical chemistry.
- Ph.D. students act as teaching assistants in undergraduate courses, and formal training in teaching is provided.
- Our rural New Hampshire location offers superb recreational opportunities, including skiing and hiking, and large cities like Boston and Montréal are just a few hours away.
For foreign students: Obtaining a visa to do graduate work in the U.S. is facilitated by Dartmouth College's International Office. Stipend and tuition for foreign and U.S. students are the same.
