Discover Middlebury Students

Middlebury College invites you to visit our campus during our annual multicultural fly-in program, Discover Middlebury, to be held October 6-8, 2019. We are looking for students who are intellectually motivated and would like to pursue higher education at a small liberal arts and sciences college.

The visit is open to seniors from traditionally under-represented groups: African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American, and American Indian students; students (regardless of ethnicity) with demonstrated financial hardship; and students who are first in their families to pursue a four-year college education. Unfortunately, international students or those living outside of the country cannot participate in this program. However, students in the U.S. with DACA status are welcome to apply.

Because Discover Middlebury is a popular program, we unfortunately cannot accommodate all applicants. There is a selective application process to fill the approximately 75 spaces available, with priority given to strong students who might not otherwise have a chance to visit campus. Meals, lodging, and a full travel scholarship will be provided by Middlebury College for all participants. Modes of transportation will vary depending on where a student is traveling from and may be by plane, train or bus.

The application deadline is August 12th, 2019. Students are responsible for completing the application, including unofficial copies of a high school transcript including grades 9 - 11, standardized test scores, and a brief statement to the Admissions Office. The statement (approx. one page) should address an important educational moment in your life and its impact on you.

We look forward to meeting you and assisting in your college selection process.  If you have any questions, please call the admissions office at 802-443-3000 or e-mail Santana Audet at
