WISP Internships

Women in Science Project (WISP) Research Internship Program

WISP aims to increase retention of women in the sciences by providing students with access to early research opportunities.

  • Eligibility: First-year students in any science discipline, and sophomores in some disciplines (chemistry, computer science, engineering, math, physics/astronomy)
  • Number of terms: Two (winter and spring)
  • Payment: Hourly wages (6-10 hours of work per week)
  • Application deadline: Fall term
  • Process: Faculty list projects in the WISP online database (available fall term only), and students contact faculty to arrange interviews. Students and faculty both submit preferences, and WISP matches students to faculty mentors based on these preferences and other factors.

More information for Dartmouth faculty members can be found on the WISP website.
