Research Internships for Non-Dartmouth Students


Dartmouth College research internships are designed to increase the participation of students in scientific research and to encourage them to consider careers in research, medicine, and science education. Internships provide high-school students and non-Dartmouth undergraduates with hands-on experience working with a team including Dartmouth faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows or graduate and undergraduate students on a new or ongoing research project.


Working with Minors

All Internship Programs are required to adhere to the Dartmouth College policy when working with minors under 18 years of age who are not enrolled in classes. Information on all of the requirements can be accessed here.

Students interested in a research internship should contact the faculty researcher they want to work with to see if internships are available in that lab. Academic programs can be accessed here, and a search of faculty/people within each program will take you to the lab/research interests of Dartmouth faculty.

The protocol for faculty who want to offer an internship is available here and includes instructions on obtaining all required forms.

A Research Internship Liability waiver template is available here.
