Thank you for your interest in the Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English.

While Bread Loaf is ideal for teachers, it is not designed only for teachers. Our students work in many fields, including publishing, business, retail, law, and medicine. The MA requirements allow for a great deal of flexibility. You can begin your studies at any one of our three campuses and attend different campuses in other summers.

Financial Aid

Bread Loaf offers financial aid in the form of need-based grants. Students can also apply for loans. Read more about our financial aid and find the application, available October 15. Dates for the coming session are posted on our website. Courses for the upcoming summer will be posted on individual campus pages in December, and the catalog will be available in late January.


Rolling admissions begins in mid-December, and continues through mid-May. The application and instructions about additional requirements are available.

Please contact me directly if you’d like a brochure or course catalog, or have any questions about the Bread Loaf program or admissions process.

Best regards,


Dana Olsen

Assistant Director
