To Our Middlebury Institute Students,

Your well-being—and the continuity of your academic experience—are our top priorities.

To help students who are experiencing unexpected financial needs, we have set up the MIIS Student Emergency Fund, which is supported by donations from faculty, staff, the MIIS Student Council, and friends in the community. The Fund is a way for students to receive additional support for pressing needs. This is not a loan, but a gift. 

Details for submitting a request to the Fund are attached. The process is confidential. 

We hope the Fund will bring some amount of relief to those in need at this difficult time.
