The Cross Cultural Community Service Fund (CCCS) supports international community service, advocacy, and activism. The fund is endowed by a Middlebury Class of 1987 alumnus and supports international service-learning and community-building internships and/or related volunteer service opportunities for undergraduate students. These internships and service initiatives may be student designed; preference is given to those opportunities in a culture distinctly different from the applicant’s background. Funds are available throughout the academic year and for summer experiences. CCCS grants can also be used to attend conferences or events (e.g., travel, registration fees, etc.) with an international theme in the U.S.
While there is no maximum amount for which to apply, typical grants range from $250-$750. Funds are limited and grant amounts are decided in part based on the intention to support as many student initiatives as possible. Students will typically receive $500 to support Winter Term internships and $750 for summer experiences. If a group of students wishes to apply for a grant from this fund, all student names may be included on one application.
For more information and to apply, please download and complete a FY15 CCCS grant application and proposed budget. Sample budget also available. If your project or request will require missing any classes, complete an absence approval form.
Completed forms should be returned by mail or email to Tiffany Sargent, Director, Community Engagement. Please note that the forms should be submitted well in advance of when the funds are needed. Processing of requests and checks may take 2-3 weeks.
CCCS grants promote international civic engagement initiatives not otherwise fully funded by a department or student organization budget.

Middlebury College students observed Martin Luther King Day by getting up early on Saturday morning, Jan. 17, and digging in for a day of service to the community.
First the women’s tennis team rallied at 7:30 a.m. to work at the local food bank to assist the hungry.
Next, at 9 a.m. a group of students started preparing an enormous lasagna and salad luncheon for the region’s migrant farm workers and their families.
And by 10 a.m., more than 60 students and a handful of staff members were positioned around the region cooking, stacking, reading, baking, moving, delivering, and performing music with and for residents in connection with the College’s second annual MLK Day of Service.
