Apply to be a Dartmouth Economics Research Scholar!

Are you in the class of 2021 and interested in participating in economics research?  Are you ready to take your economics training to the next level?  If so, we invite you 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.
