MIIS/Middlebury and WorldTeach Scholarships


We recognize WorldTeach students and their commitment to service, language and cross-cultural communication as a valuable part of our campus community and global alumni network. WorldTeach alumni are guaranteed a $10,000 scholarship for a graduate degree program at the Middlebury Institute at Monterey.

The Middlebury Institute at Monterey offers Master’s degrees in International Business, International Policy Studies, International Environmental Policy, International Trade Policy, Translation and Interpretation, Teaching a Foreign Language, TESOL, and several other areas.

WorldTeach and The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) have also collaborated to offer a Masters in TESOL/WorldTeach program. Applicants must apply separately to both MIIS and WorldTeach. Students would do a year of coursework at the Middlebury Institute before beginning their WorldTeach service. From there, they will receive a minimum scholarship of half of their tuition for their final semester(s). This innovative program will allow both a theoretical and practical experience for the student, only enhancing their opportunities in the field. For more information, click here
