Summer Internship Program

(Application Early March)

EE Just Summer Internship - Program Description

The E.E. Just Summer Internship Program provides opportunities for Dartmouth first-year students to pursue full-time research in a STEM discipline (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). These hands-on experiences are intended to inspire students from groups underrepresented in the sciences to major in a STEM discipline and to consider pursuing a career as a research scientist.


First-year students who are planning to major in a STEM field and are committed to the mission of the E.E. Just Program are eligible to apply for the summer research program. Applicants must identify a research mentor and work with that mentor in the spring to develop a summer research project lasting at least 8 weeks.  Note that this is a competitive program and not all students who submit an application will be selected. Students may work with Dartmouth faculty in any science department (including math), and may also opt to work with faculty at Geisel or Thayer.  Students who are not sure how to find a faculty mentor can refer to information on Finding a Faculty Research Mentor on the UGAR website.
