Fellowships and Scholarships

Middlebury offers a number of merit-based fellowships and scholarships. To be considered, you must be accepted by one of the Language Schools and meet all additional application requirements. However, you may submit your scholarship application before you receive an admission decision. Application deadlines are typically December 15. Contact lsfellowships@middlebury.edu if you have any questions. The following are available:

Need-Based Financial Aid

Our need-based financial aid is awarded in the form of grants. This means that if you qualify, you will attend the Language Schools at a reduced cost. We are only able to offer partial need-based grants. You will typically be responsible for a significant portion of the cost to attend. You will also be responsible for travel to and from the program, books, and personal expenses.

Need-based aid is limited. Aid awards are offered on a “first come, first served” basis. If you need financial aid to attend, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Please consult Dates and Fees under Immersion or Graduate Program for your Language School of interest for the maximum need-based grant. You are responsible for paying the remaining cost. Consult Student Financial Services for additional information.

Outside Funding

Immersion students can apply to outside funding opportunities.
