These Are Paid Internships
WISP interns work 6-10 hours per week. First year interns work are expected to work two terms (winter and spring), and sophomores may work one or two terms, depending on their D-plans.
Interns are paid $12 per hour for up to 100 hours per term. This does count towards work-study requirements. Interns must complete the I-9 employment verification process prior to beginning their WISP internship.
Getting to Off-Campus Internships
Off-campus internships can be accessed through the Advance Transit bus system (it's free!).
Sophomores and Transfer Students
Sophomores: eligible only for internships in chemistry, computer science, engineering, math, physics/astronomy.
Transfers: all internships are open to transfer women in their first year at Dartmouth, regardless of their assigned class year.
You may not participate in another Dartmouth research program in the same year as a WISP internship (e.g. Sophomore Research Scholars, First-Year Research Experiences in Engineering)
Other Options for First-Year Research
WISP internship funding is only available for projects listed in the WISP online faculty project database. Other options for research in the first year:
