The Loker-Hicks Scholars at Monterey

Loker-Hicks Scholarships support Middlebury graduates as they pursue master's degrees at the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Here, our 2010-2011 Loker-Hicks Scholars reflect on their experiences and express their gratitude.


Rebecca Marcus

Rebecca Marcus '07

Rebecca is pursuing an MPA in the Graduate School of International Policy and Management at Monterey. She says that at first, her background in dance made her feel a bit out of place in courses on nonprofit management, but she has since found her niche in the program. She hopes to combine her love of the arts with her passion for working with youth.

Listen to Rebecca's story.

Daniel Kelley

Daniel Kelley '08

In the Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation, and Language Education, Daniel is learning that professionals in his field don't just substitute one set of words for another; they must master the art of "adapting the language to an entirely different cultural frame of mind." His interest in the field was sparked during a Middlebury Winter Term course on translation taught by visiting Monterey faculty.
