WISP 2020-2021: Program Changes

Because of the pandemic, access to Dartmouth campus facilities, including research facilities and labs, is highly limited. For this reason, the fall matching process for the WISP research internship program was suspended. The WISP program will be active during winter term but with a different structure and focus. If restrictions on campus access are lifted, the matching process may be rescheduled for winter term so that students can engage in faculty-mentored research in the spring.
