Your graduate program is an important investment in your future career.

We recognize that the financial commitment of graduate education can be an obstacle for many qualified candidates. To help make a Middlebury Institute education attainable, we consider both academic merit and financial need when granting scholarships.

In addition to traditional application requirements (transcripts, résumé or CV, test scores, etc.), you’ll have the opportunity to provide more detailed information about your academic and professional achievements, as well as your plans for financing your education and any particular financial circumstances that relate to your pursuit of graduate education. Partner and other scholarships are also available, so check to see if you qualify.

The sooner you apply, the more likely you are to receive our largest scholarships. You’ll also know your scholarship and financial aid information sooner, allowing you to calculate the actual cost of your program.

Watch our videos on how to finance your education. We also include customized instructions for international students.

More than 95 percent of qualified applicants who request scholarship consideration receive institutional support.
