Discover Middlebury Program
Middlebury College invites you to visit our campus during our annual multicultural open house, Discover Middlebury, to be held October 13-15, 2013. We are looking for students who are intellectually motivated and would like to explore the pursuit of 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.
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 and lodging will be provided free of charge by Middlebury College for all participants, and transportation will also be provided for students who will be financial aid applicants. Modes of transportation will vary depending on where a student is traveling from and may be by plane, train or bus.
Please apply via our online Discover Middlebury Application. Students are responsible for completing the application which can be accessed via the link on the right, including unofficial copies of your high school transcript including grades 9 - 11, your standardized test scores, and a brief statement to the Admissions Office. The statement (approx. one page) should address why you would like to participate in Middlebury's multicultural weekend and what you hope to get out of your future college experience. Please complete your application by accessing the link on the right by Friday, September 13, 2013.
We look forward to meeting you and assisting in your college selection process. If you have any questions, please e-mail Sara Cohen (802.443.5274), Brittany Carlson (802.443.5371) or Santana Snyder (802.443.5163).
