Globalization Scholars


Globalization Scholars are exceptional Dartmouth students with an interest in conducting research in topics related to globalization. Globalization Scholars work full time (35 hours / week for ten weeks) during their off-term on research with a faculty member affiliated with the Globalization Cluster. For this, Globalization Scholars receive a stipend of $5,000.

The Globalization Scholar program is open to all Dartmouth undergraduates, although preference is given to those who plan to take, are in the process of taking, or have completed the Dartmouth Economics international economics "9s" sequence (Econ 29, Econ 39, and Econ 69).

Please email with any other questions about the program.

Working with Faculty

Most globalization scholars work with a single affiliated faculty member on that faculty's research. That research could include conducting literature reviews, performing data cleaning and analysis, assisting with economic theory and simulations, etc., with the exact assistance depending on the preferences of the scholar and the needs of the particular research project. Some globalization scholars may instead work to assist with the public dissemination of affiliated faculty members' research. These scholars would be in charge with reading faculty's research, interviewing faculty members, and writing up short summaries of the research that can be featured on the globalization, economics, and/or Tuck webpages.

Any Tuck or Economics professor working on issues related to globalization is eligible to work with a globalization scholar. Faculty include (but are not limited to) Treb Allen (Econ), Andy Bernard (Tuck), Emily Blanchard (Tuck), Davin Chor (Tuck), Diego Comin (Econ), Jim Feyrer (Econ), Teresa Fort (Tuck), Matt Grant (Econ), Apoorv Gupta (Econ), Doug Irwin (Econ), Erin Mansur (Tuck), Nina Pavcnik (Econ), Matt Slaughter (Tuck), Chris Snyder (Econ), Bob Staiger (Econ), and Meredith Startz (Econ).

Globalization Scholars are paired with faculty members by the program leadership.  However, applicants can list faculty members who they would be interested in working with in their application.

Candidates do not need to reach out to faculty members prior to applying, but if you are interested in working with a particular faculty member, it doesn't hurt to reach out to see if they have a particular project that would be a good fit. If so, please indicate this in your applicatio
