Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Scholarships are made possible for students, BY students. Every semester, students make monetary contributions to the MIIS Annual Fund through the Pass the Torch campaign.

The Importance of Giving

Your gift not only provides important scholarship funds, but has an added benefit: foundations and individual philanthropists look at the percentage of alumni that make a financial contribution to their alma mater when considering a gift to the school. This percentage is regarded as the best way to measure alumni satisfaction.

The percentage of alumni contributing at any level is just as important as the dollar amount of alumni gifts. Therefore, that means both a $20 gift and $2,000 gift are meaningful. The Institute would rather receive five gifts of $10 each than a single $50 gift.

For continued success and sustainability, the Institute must increase its alumni participation as this support helps to fund scholarships, programs, and services for our current students.

How to Make a Gift

There are three very easy ways to make a gift. Whether it is $1, $10, or $20.16, any size gift makes a difference.

  • Visit our secure online giving page to make your gift with a credit card to the Alumni Scholarship Fund.
  • Drop off your cash or a check made out to the Institute at the Alumni Office, Student Services, or the Advancement Office (McGowan Suite 300).
  • Mail your contribution to the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, c/o Gift Administration, Middlebury College, 5 Court Street, Middlebury, VT 05753-6014
