The Middlebury Institute offers a variety of competitive scholarships toward our on-site master’s programs for both U.S. and international students.

Middlebury Institute Scholarships

We offer merit and need-based scholarships. To apply, submit your application for admission by the next deadline and upload personal scholarship statements as part of your online application.

HBCU, HSI, and TCU Scholarships

As part of our efforts to be a more diverse and inclusive community, the Middlebury Institute has established a scholarship for alumni of U.S. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI), and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs). Beginning with students admitted for fall 2021, alumni of these institutions are guaranteed a $10,000 annual scholarship (prorated by program length) toward an onsite master’s degree at the Middlebury Institute. You will also be eligible for additional merit and need-based scholarships. Please fill out this form to confirm your scholarship interest.

Endowed and Named Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends of the Institute, we offer a number of endowed and named scholarships. You will be automatically considered for these scholarships after you submit your application for admission; no other steps are required.

Partner Scholarships

Alumni and members of our partner organizations and schools receive application fee waivers and, in many cases, guaranteed scholarships for our on-site master’s programs. Your experience is valuable to our diverse community, and we look forward to having you join us.

Summer Language Scholarships

Do you need to boost your language skills or learn a new language before starting your master’s degree program? Admitted students may qualify for a summer language scholarship to one of Middlebury’s world-renowned language programs.

Middlebury Legacy Scholarships

Middlebury offers guaranteed $10,000 Legacy Scholarships to degree holders of any Middlebury school and their extended family members for our on-site master’s programs. You may also receive need-based and/or merit scholarship awards in addition to a Legacy Scholarship.

Middlebury Affiliation Scholarships

Participants in eligible nondegree programs are guaranteed a $5,000 Middlebury Affiliation Scholarship for our on-site master’s programs. You may also receive additional need-based and/or merit scholarship awards.

External Scholarships

Many organizations offer funding for graduate school and this list of resources has been helpful to students in the past. Please note that we do not work directly with these organizations and cannot guarantee their services. We encourage you to look for other resources as well.
