The Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program named the Middlebury Institute of International Studies one of the top-enrolling institutions nationwide for the 2020–21 academic year, with 48 students enrolled.
The Middlebury Institute attracted a record enrollment of Peace Corps participants this fall, reflecting the common values underlying their long partnership, which was recently renewed for another five years.
The U.S. Department of State has awarded one current Middlebury Institute student and two recent graduates Critical Language Scholarships for the study of languages considered vital to national security and economic prosperity.
The Middlebury Institute offered the International Professional Service Semester (IPSS) practicum internship course as a summer course for the first time 2021. Six students from three degree programs (IEP, IPD, and MPA) are participating in the first summer cohort.
Honoring the decades long relationship with the Peace Corps, the Middlebury Institute is guaranteeing a $10,000 scholarship for all Returned Volunteers, including those whose service was interrupted by COVID 19.
