Globalization Scholars off to a strong start

Dartmouth's inaugural Globalization Scholars got first-hand research experience with Globalization Cluster faculty this summer.

Dartmouth's Globalization Scholars program got off to a strong start this summer. The program – which matches exceptional Dartmouth undergraduate students with Globalization Cluster affiliated faculty for a full-time research experience during the students off-term – welcomed its first Scholars summer term.

Yiran (Isabella) Yu '23 worked with Tuck Professor Davin Chor to update the textbook for the Tuck course Global Economics for Managers (GEM), compiling raw data and cleaned statistics into data pack for each chapter. "Being a Globalization Scholar and working with Professor Chor has made my past summer one of the most fruitful academic experiences at Dartmouth. It was not only an opportunity for me to practice data cleaning and visualization skills but an educational exposure to advanced economics and business management prior to attending a business school," Isabella said.

Grayce Gibbs '22 worked with Tuck Professor Teresa Fort on a variety of projects, including conducting a literature review of research and development tax credits, analyzing how imports changed in response to the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, and examining how lobbying efforts over trade policies varied across industries. One of the graphs she made ended up being presented at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)'s Summer Institute, which "was fun to see", Grayce said. "Overall, I really enjoyed the research that I got to be part of this summer, and I learned a lot. In addition to developing soft and hard research skills, I was able to see the inner workings of the research world."
