These fellowships offer students the opportunity to take advantage of the combined language and international study resources of the Monterey Institute and Middlebury Language Schools.


In the eighth year of this program, these fellowships are made possible by a $1 million gift from Kathryn Davis to address today’s critical need for more effective language proficiency. The award is  to attend the Middlebury summer Language Schools in Middlebury, Vermont. Fellowship recipients will study a language through the Language Schools’ signature immersion model: "No English Spoken Here." 

“Fellowships for Peace” recipients will be chosen on the basis of academic credentials, experience, and commitment to building a more peaceful world.
