Whether you realized it right then, or it came to you later—we’ve all had those moments when Middlebury changed us. These moments are the result of the incredible culture of philanthropy at Middlebury.
We are focusing on four fundraising priorities: financial aid, faculty support, applying the liberal arts, and Annual Giving. Learn more.
Applying the Liberal Arts
A Lot of Revelations
While interning with The Nature Conservancy on Martha’s Vineyard and cultivating biodiversity through diverse projects, Luke Elder ’13 and Max Hoffman ’14 opened up about the many facets of their experience, from daily duties to moments of wonder.
In the field as well as the office, the pair developed a precious awareness of how to work with nature that can only come from learning by doing.
Featured Priority: Financial Aid
The Potential for Change
At the Bread Loaf School of English (BLSE) around 70% of students receive some kind of financial aid. This crucial support will enable many of them to become exemplary teachers who will inspire their own students and revitalize their educational communities.
In this brief video, David Wandera MA English ’08, MLitt ’13 explains how a Betty and David Jones Teacher Fellowship and other College financial assistance changed his life by allowing him to study at BLSE. Emily Bartels, director of the Bread Loaf School of English, also discusses why financial aid is one of the school's top fundraising priorities.
