The Middlebury Institute Legacy Scholarship is a $10,000 scholarship for Middlebury alumni and their extended family members, and participants in nondegree Middlebury programs are eligible for a $5,000 scholarship.

Legacy Scholarship Award

Degree holders from any Middlebury school are eligible for a guaranteed $10,000 Legacy Scholarship. This may be part of a larger merit and need-based scholarship award depending on the strength of your application or financial situation.

Legacy Scholarship Eligibility

Eligible applicants include alumni who hold degrees from the following:

  • Middlebury Institute of International Studies

  • Middlebury College

  • Middlebury Language Schools

  • Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English Eligible family members include spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews of all Middlebury alumni.

Affiliation Scholarships

If you have participated in one or more Middlebury nondegree programs (listed below), you are also eligible for the Middlebury Affiliation Scholarship, a guaranteed $5,000 scholarship for each program you successfully completed.

  • Middlebury Language Schools

  • Middlebury C.V. Starr Schools Abroad

  • MiddCORE

  • Summer Intensive Language Program

  • Intensive English Program

Combining Scholarships

Applicants who qualify for multiple Legacy, Affiliation, and/or Partner scholarships will be awarded the largest single scholarship or a combination of scholarships with a combined total value of up to 50 percent of tuition. Thus, for example, Middlebury College alumni who have attended Language Schools and studied abroad at a Middlebury location, who enroll full time in a four-semester program at the Institute would be guaranteed $20,000 in scholarships. Awards will be prorated based on program length.
