For Internships at Dartmouth

Depending on the programs meals may be provided while at Dartmouth through a debit Meal Card or other means. Students are urged to plan and spend wisely.

Each intern will be reimbursed up to a specified amount for air fare and transportation as determined by travel quotations secured prior to departure. All travel before or following the experience is at the expense and coordination of the student, and must be approved in advance.
