Deadline: January 15
*Applications will be available at the website listed below in November
Full Scholarships for Intensive Language Study at Middlebury Summer Language Schools in: Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian. The scholarships are part of the “100 Summer Scholarships for Peace” Program, made possible by a $1 million gift from Kathryn Wasserman Davis. The purpose of the program is to address today”s critical need for more effective language proficiency. Each individual grant covers the full comprehensive fee (tuition, room, and board) for one summer at the Middlebury Language Schools, plus transportation to and from Middlebury’s Vermont campus and program related expenses. One summer of intensive immersion language at Middlebury is the equivalent of one full year of language study taken during the regular academic year (applicants who are interested in transferring academic credit should check with their home institution regarding transferability).
The Kathryn Wasserman Davis grants are merit-based and intended primarily for exceptionally qualified individuals with demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas: foreign languages, international, global, or area studies, international politics and economics, peace and security studies, and/or conflict resolution. Individuals in other fields, including working professionals, are also encouraged to apply if their field of expertise requires them to study one of the critical languages listed above.
