Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Financial Aid

Obtaining a graduate degree is a long-term personal investment. The Student Financial Services Office is here to help you make it possible to cover the cost of attendance not covered by scholarships. We can help facilitate additional resources through federal financial aid and private loans.

Types of Financial Aid


You may apply for U.S. federal and/or private education loans to help pay your tuition and living expenses. International students are eligible for private loans only, with a U.S. cosigner, and may be able to receive education loans from their own countries.


Both U.S. and international students are eligible to apply for work-study positions. These student employment opportunities may help you pay for living expenses, such as rent, food, or entertainment.

U.S. Veterans’ Benefits

We offer up to 100 percent tuition coverage for 75 qualifying U.S. veterans each year through the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Constitution Day

Since 2005, all educational institutions that receive federal funding have been required by congressional mandate to celebrate "Constitution Day" on September 17 by offering educational programming related to the Constitution. Middlebury encourages all members of its community to be familiar with the U.S. Constitution, and has provided this website to make available some library and internet resources that you may find interesting.

The U.S. Constitution Online site answers both common and obscure constitutional FAQ's, while the Library of Congress's American Memory project includes a number of relevant documents and a presentation, "To Form a More Perfect Union: The Work of the Continental Congress and the Constitutional Convention." For those interested in the document itself, a digital version of the Constitution is available from the National Archives site. Finally, among the library books listed, you will find Charles A. Dana Professor of Political Science Murray Dry's 2004 book, Civil Peace and the Quest for Truth: The First Amendment Freedoms in Political Philosophy and American Constitutionalism.
