The Presidential Scholar Research Assistantship program is a Dartmouth-wide opportunity made available to all Juniors who are in the top 40% of their class after their sophomore fall. The assistantship is two terms in length, and students selected into the program are expected to work 7-12 hours per week on their assistantship. A small stipend is provided and the possibility of academic credit exists.
