The Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English, which is committed to increasing and supporting the diversity of its student population, is offering a number of special scholarships for graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Tribal Colleges and Universities.

The scholarships will cover up to 100% of demonstrated financial need; the Middlebury Student Financial Services Office will determine need based on the aid application. Bread Loaf will waive the application fee and enrollment deposit for these HBCU and TCU scholars.

The program is tailored to the talents and needs of K-12 English and language arts teachers, and we encourage applications from graduates who are currently teaching.

Undergraduates from these institutions who will have completed their junior year by summer 2019 are also eligible to apply.

Applicants should complete the standard Bread Loaf application, indicating whether any college attended is an HBCU or TCU. Applicants will also need to complete the financial aid application; they will then automatically be considered for these special scholarships.
