Financial aid and special funding help make a Bread Loaf education affordable.

Financial aid is available in the form of grants and loans. Grants do not need to be repaid. Aid is awarded on the basis of financial need and scholastic achievement on a first-come, first-served basis. There are also on-campus student jobs available in Vermont and New Mexico.

Student Aid

New and returning students who wish to be considered for financial aid offered through Middlebury College must complete a Bread Loaf Financial Aid Form. Aid funds are limited, so we encourage you to apply early. The aid application form for the upcoming session is generally available beginning in mid-October. Offers are made through Middlebury’s Office of Student Financial Services. They will be your contact throughout the financial aid application process and can help you with any questions you have about your aid application or the timing of your aid decision.

Completed applications for financial aid should be submitted as early as possible. Decisions are made beginning in January after an applicant is accepted to Bread Loaf or, for returning students, officially re-enrolled.
