City Year alumni, staff, and corps members are eligible for 25 percent tuition scholarships toward a Middlebury Institute master’s degree plus matching funds for the Segal Education Award.


We recognize City Year students and their commitment to service as a valuable part of our campus community and global alumni network. 

City Year alumni, staff, and corps members admitted to our in-person degree programs receive a 25 percent ($12K+ annual) scholarship, in addition to matching funds for the Segal Education Award. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to receive additional merit and need-based scholarships.

If you are interested in an online degree program, you can still waive the application fee and benefit from the lower tuition cost for our online programs.

Segal Education Award

We match the Segal Education Award up to the maximum award of $7,395 each year as a part of your scholarship award.

  • You must meet the admissions requirements for your Middlebury Institute degree program.
  • City Year corps members or alumni must have completed at least one year of service.
  • City Year staff members must have been employed for at least two years.
