OUTSIDE THE LINES
While Dartmouth’s financial aid covers 100% of the demonstrated need of all its students, the opportunity for funding doesn’t stop there. Dartmouth students have access to resources that make all kinds of experiences possible and ensure that every student can take advantage of the diverse opportunities Dartmouth has to offer. We asked current students to share experiences made possible with Dartmouth’s financial support.
Through Dartmouth’s funding, my friends and I had the chance to eat dinner at Pine Restaurant with Visiting Professor Kēhaulani Kauanui after a brilliant lecture about Indigenous sovereignty and the Mauna Kea crisis happening in Hawai'i. In Hanover’s fanciest restaurant, we all talked about our cultures, kinship ideologies, and our future aspirations in language revitalization and the decolonization of education. It was an incredible conversation with some of my best friends, mentors, and leaders in Dartmouth’s Native community and was one of the biggest highlights of my first term at Dartmouth. — Gabriel Gilbert ’23
I was in the midst of my third class with Professor Sarah Smith when I mentioned to her that I was interested in spending my winter off-term in New Zealand. She enthusiastically explained that her cousin was a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland and offered to connect me. Fast forward a few months, and I was off to Auckland for an internship funded by the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth. Without my professor and financial support from the Dickey Center, I would not have been able to realize that opportunity. — Julia Snodgrass ’21 28 | admissions.dartmouth.edu
