Sustainable Study Abroad Grants

Sustainable Study Abroad Grants of up to $500 are available to students studying abroad through Middlebury College.  Undergraduates studying at the C.V. Starr Middlebury Schools Abroad, as well as Middlebury students studying abroad on approved externally-sponsored programs, are eligible for these grants.

Grants may be used for research projects or participation in events or projects related to sustainability issues; this may include projects or research that look at ways of reducing the human impact on the environment, enhancing social well-being, or economic development that addresses the environment and/or social well-being.

Sustainability projects aim to create “a delightfully diverse, safe, healthy, and just world, with clean air, water, soil and power - economically, equitably, ecologically and elegantly enjoyed.” (Wm. McDonough)
