The Office of Student Financial Services can help you finance your Middlebury Institute education.

Obtaining a graduate degree is a long-term, personal investment. We can help you cover the cost of attendance not covered by institutional grants or scholarships with additional forms of federal financial aid.

Types of Financial Aid


U.S. federal and/or private education loans are available to help pay your tuition and living expenses. International students are eligible for private loans only, with a U.S. cosigner, and may also be able to receive education loans from their own countries.


U.S. citizens and international students are eligible to apply for work-study positions at the Institute. These student employment opportunities can help cover living expenses such as rent, food, or entertainment.

Need-Based Grants

Applicants to our degree programs who demonstrate exceptional financial need may apply for a need-based grant to supplement existing forms of aid.

U.S. Veterans’ Benefits

We offer up to 100 percent tuition coverage for 75 qualifying U.S. veterans each year through the Yellow Ribbon Program.

How to Apply

Follow these steps to apply for financial aid at the Middlebury Institute.
