I just want to thank you, or whoever set this up, for the spirit of the gift. I believe legacy is so important. By offering this scholarship to the extended Middlebury family, you have made this one alumna feel special and grateful. Thank you.

The Middlebury Institute for International Studies is more than an institute - that is, it is the power house for intellectuals, compassionate global citizens driven by the passion to serve humanity no matter who, where and when, and it is a place where one can strive (grow their mind) and do better. I wish to become a graduate student at the Institute in the Fall of 2017, and will be proud to be part of the mission and Middlebury community. Hakim from Afghanistan.
