Dartmouth International Economics Visiting Ph.D. Program

Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, the Department of Economics offers a Visiting Ph.D. Program in International Economics (broadly construed). The program will provide funding to current Ph.D. students with high potential who have completed their coursework to visit Dartmouth College.

Visiting students will be given office space and full library/computing privileges. They will also have the opportunity to present their own research to faculty for feedback. The visiting Ph.D. students will be compensated $3,000 for each month they spend in residence at Dartmouth during the 2017/8 academic year.

Students interested in applying should send (1) a cover letter indicating their preferred dates of residence; (2) a C.V.; (3) a one to two page summary of the research project they will be working on while in residence; and (4) a (brief) reference letter from an advisor at their home institution to
