The Rockefeller Center is one of several centers at Dartmouth which grants funding support for unpaid internships to undergraduates. Rockefeller Public Policy Internship Grants are designed to enable students to work in an unpaid non-profit or governmental agency on issues of public policy research, public policy analysis, issue evaluation, social entrepreneurship, or activities that help shape and determine public policy - whether at the local, state, or national level. Grants of up to $4,000 are awarded to students through a competitive application and interview process each term. The deadline for Spring 2015 consideration is Wednesday, January 28, 2015.

Congratulations to the eleven interns working in a variety of host organizations and funded by the Rockefeller Center for Winter Term!

Internships 101: Interning with a Congressional Committee

The Rockefeller Center occasionally posts tips on securing great internships through its Internships 101 series.

Looking for an internship with Congress? Here are a few tips to aid your search:

  1. Congressional committee internships tend to be more policy-focused than internships with individual Congressmen or Senators. If you want to work on policy, look for the committee in either house that fits your area of interest.
  2. Internships are just as political as the rest of Congress. Many internships are awarded not only for merit but also based on where you are from. Consider a committee or subcommittee chaired by a Congressmen or Senator from your home state.
  3. Contact the Congressional office before applying. If you are interested in working on a specific issue that the Congressman or Senator is also working on, call the office and ask to speak with a congressional staffer before submitting your application. By being proactive, you may be able to work out a project even before you arrive.

MIT Philosophy Professor Sally Haslanger on "Ideology, Moral Theory & Social Change" on May 1 at 3:30 PM

The Philosophy Department at Dartmouth College is proud to welcome Sally Haslanger, Professor of Philosophy at MIT, to deliver the Department of Philosophy's 39th Annual Francis W. Gramlich Memorial Lecture this Wednesday, May 1, at 3:30pm in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall. The topic of her talk will be "Ideology, Moral Theory & Social Change." 

Sally Haslanger describes her talk: Human beings are agents able to make choices and govern their own lives.  Recognizing this is important for moral evaluation of our actions.  There is a temptation, then, to explain patterns of inequality in terms of individual choice.  Those who are disadvantaged have made poor - possibly even irrational - choices.  This common strategy of explanation, however, fails to identify how social structures both constrain and enable our choices, and how unjust structures perpetuate injustice.  Can we develop an account of action that both grants individual agency and moral responsibility, but also locates action within structures that perpetuate injustice in spite of our best intentions?  How do structures get a grip on us, and how do we change them?
