Dartmouth Economics Research Scholar Application 2019


We invite members of the Dartmouth Class of 2021 to apply to become a Dartmouth Economics Research Scholar (DERS). 

This DERS program provides additional mentoring and support in economics research to students with strong research potential and high academic standing.  Additional advising and out-of-class enrichment activities -- dinner discussions, workshops, and peer exchanges -- accelerate and enhance the DERS' coursework and enable closer participation with faculty on research projects.  Such participation begins with paid assistantships on faculty projects, but often evolves into research collaborations with faculty and independent student projects, including senior theses. The program also aims to prepare interested students for graduate studies in economics and related fields. 

No written recommendations are required, but applicants must have the endorsement of at least one member of the Economics faculty. Selected applicants will successfully complete Econometrics (Economics 20) no later than Spring 2019. Selected applicants should anticipate being assigned a faculty mentor where they will work on faculty-led research starting as early as Summer 2019. Selected applicants should anticipate applying for funding for these research opportunities through UGAR’s Presidential Scholars program or Junior Research Scholars program. 

If you are a Dartmouth `21 interested in applying, please fill out the form below by 8 PM ON JANUARY 31, 2019.  Decisions will be announced in early- to mid-February.  We anticipate having space for about 15 students.
