Keeping the Middlebury experience affordable to gifted scholars, artists, athletes, and student leaders—regardless of their financial circumstances—depends on a robust financial-aid program. And it depends on donors like you.
Through your gift, you enable Middlebury to maintain its need-blind admissions policy for domestic students, attract top students and scholars, and become more reflective and inclusive of today’s and tomorrow’s student body, which will enrich our entire community.

Why Financial Aid Matters—In Their Words
Opening the World
I’m a first-generation college student, and in high school I didn’t know if college would even be an option. Now I can feel myself growing and changing. My mom has noticed it, too. She says I seem more decisive and much less hesitant to do things normally out of my comfort zone. I’m studying Spanish and Russian, and I hope to work at the United Nations one day.

When I first came to Middlebury I was homesick and worried about leaving the only home I had ever known. Yet all of the experiences I have had since arriving here have made Middlebury my home. I am very thankful for all of the opportunities the college has provided for me thus far and for everything that will come in the future.
