When Middlebury moved to remote learning in 2020, economics professor Erin Wolcott’s students were, she says, “devastated to say goodbye to their friends, concerned about the state of the world, and worried they would not learn anything online.” But the class transitioned smoothly. Students were engaged. They discussed immigration, tariffs, and the disproportionate effect of COVID-19. And guest speakers, including a trade economist from the Federal Reserve and an editor from the New York Times, joined the class.

“I was a first-generation college student, and tuition was a daunting financial burden. A scholarship made a life-changing experience possible for me, and for that I am forever grateful. Currently I am completing my medical residency in emergency medicine, and starting a family with my wife, Lizzie ’11, who I met at Middlebury.”
– Silas Wong ’12, Medical Resident, Emergency Medicine, Yale University
