Thanks to the support of generous donors (including Language Schools alumni) and Middlebury’s commitment to provide an opportunity for as many students as possible, we are pleased to offer need-based financial aid and merit-based fellowships and scholarships.

You must qualify to receive need-based financial aid. Aid is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be awarded until it runs out. There is no guarantee that applying by the deadline will ensure financial aid, so we encourage you to apply as soon as you finish the admissions application.
