APPLICATION PROCESS AND DEADLINES
The Mitchell Scholarship requires endorsement by Middlebury College in order for you to apply. This rule applies for alumni as well as seniors. To be nominated, there are two internal deadlines:
1. The first deadline is to submit a preliminary application by April 22, 2013. Submit in .pdf format to Annie Dolber (email@example.com) in the Student Fellowships office:
- Preliminary application forms for the Mitchell Scholarship are available here.
- Banner Degree Progress Report
- draft of Mitchell application, including essays
- Submit signed Fellowship Waiver and Permission Form
Note: letters of recommendation are NOT included in this stage of application.
The British Scholarships Committee at Middlebury will review preliminary applications and send back comments for summer revisions.
2. The second internal deadline is to submit revised applications by Tuesday, September 3, 2013 (note this is before classes begin on May 9). Please submit your revised materials listed above, also in a pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org in the Fellowships office.
You must also call our office at x2455 or stop by ADK 109 to set up an interview time with the British Scholarships committee, who will interview all qualified applicants during the week of September 9, and endorse viable candidates as nominees.
If you are selected as a Mitchell nominee, it is at this point that you would begin your on-line application and secure your letters of recommendation. We suggest you let your recommenders know in advance of the pending request.
Once nominated, final applications will be due by 5:00 on October 1, 2013. In addition, applicants must complete a short video interview; instructions on how to do the video interview will be sent to all applicants who have completed the online application.
The Mitchell reading committee will identify 20 finalists by early November. The finalists will be then notified by telephone and invited to Washington, DC, for the Selection Committee interviews. Unsuccessful applicants are informed during November by e-mail.
