The Fund for Innovation provides support forĀ experimental andĀ unconventional projects that have the potential to create lasting, positive change and strengthen Middlebury's educational experience.

New for Spring 2018:


This spring, the Fund for Innovation will give first priority to projects focused on the theme "inclusivity as an everyday ethic." We interpret this phrase broadly, but we are particularly interested in receiving proposals for educational models that seek to enhance Middlebury by engaging the diversity of our community. The deadline to apply is March 1. We also welcome Fast-Track proposals oriented around this theme, and Fast-Track proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis.
