If you will have completed at least 4 years of Russian (or the equivalent), are interested in the graduate program, but aren't sure whether you will meet the proficiency requirements, you may go ahead and apply. If the Director decides that you are not ready for graduate work in Russian, we can switch your application to the 8-week program. FAQ: Is funding available for graduate students? Yes. Graduate applicants may apply for both need-based aid and special scholarships, such as the Kathryn Davis Fellowship for Peace. Aid for certain programs, such as the academic year in Russia, runs out quickly, so apply as early as you can. FAQ: What is the housing like? Graduate students, 8-week students, faculty, and staff live in the dormitories of Middlebury College and take meals together in the dining hall. Residency on campus is required, as a condition of creating a high-quality immersion experience for all. Unfortunately, the Language Schools are not able to offer family housing for students with a partner/spouse or children.
