Funding Opportunities for Students
The Rohatyn Center is a valuable resource for students seeking financial support for on-campus events; overseas research to write senior theses; and connections to funding opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate study, research, conference attendance, internships, and experiential learning.
Two grants are currently administered by the Center. The RCGA Research Grant provides funding for overseas research for juniors preparing to write senior theses during the summer before senior year, while the Mellon Research Grant provides funding for research either during their study-abroad program or in the summer immediately following the program. Finally, grants from the Padma Desai Fund provide funding opportunities for students interested in conducting research or an internship while studying abroad in Russia as part of their Middlebury College experience.
Students are also encouraged to apply for funding to bring a speaker to campus. Proposals will be reviewed as they are submitted. Students are also encouraged to review the Student Funding Database to find other opportunities on campus to fund their research.
