Middlebury hosts special visit programs at certain times throughout the year.
Discover Middlebury is our annual “fly-in” program for students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. In a typical year, we offer a full travel scholarship to campus for participants. But this is not a typical year. In the interest of everyone’s health and safety, we are offering a new virtual version of Discover Middlebury, held the week of October 11th, 2020. We will offer a window into student and academic life on campus by including opportunities to engage with other participants, current students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The deadline to apply is September 14th, 2020.
Who Should Apply
We invite applications from domestic students who are intellectually motivated and would like to pursue higher education at a small liberal arts and sciences college, including seniors from these traditionally underrepresented groups:
- African American, Latinx, Asian American, and American Indian students
- Students of all races and ethnicities with demonstrated financial hardship
- Students who are first in their families to pursue a four-year college education
Students in the U.S. who are undocumented or with with DACA status are welcome to apply. Unfortunately, international students or those living outside of the U.S. are not eligible to apply.
Application Requirements and Deadline
Students are responsible for completing the application and including the following:
- Unofficial high school transcript including complete grades for 9–11
- A one-page statement addressing an important educational moment in your life and its impact on you
This year, Middlebury became test-optional, so Discover Middlebury applicants are not required to submit self-reported scores. If scores are submitted, they will be considered in the applicant’s academic evaluation.
Applicants also have the opportunity to submit an optional “Elevator Pitch” video through InitialView. Learn more here.
The application deadline is September 14th, 2020.
