The Provost’s office is responsible for overseeing several processes that are supported by online forms.  These forms are available at certain times for Middlebury faculty, students and staff.  For additional information about these processes please see the following website:

If you have any questions specifically about this form please contact Lisa LaRose at

Complete this form for any Middlebury/MIIS-sponsored (funded, credited, supported, represented) program eight weeks before committing to the program.


  • If a request is approved, it is approved under the conditions at the time of approval.  If a (new) travel advisory is issued or the security situation changes, the proposal must be reconsidered.
  • Individuals must be legally authorized to work in the country where they will be employed, as well as have the proper immigration status. For non-citizens, this usually includes a work visa sponsored by a host country employer. If the proposal includes any hires (current Middlebury/MIIS personnel as well as new hires) who will be working and getting paid for their work abroad, you must contact Middlebury HR at, with a copy to Global Operations at, to discuss a viable staffing option.

Middlebury is pleased to be a participating member of Projects for Peace, a program that honors Kathryn Wasserman Davis, a noted philanthropist who was interested in finding new ways to advance world peace.

Undergraduate students at more than 90 college campuses across the United States, including Middlebury, are eligible to design and submit proposals that serve local, domestic or global communities and address the goal of improving the prospects for peace in the 21st century.

The top submissions from the participating campuses, including at least one from Middlebury, will receive $10,000 in funding to initiate projects anywhere in the world during the summer of that year.

Projects for Peace has very specific guidelines for content and formatting which can be found here. Please read instructions carefully. 

Applicants are encouraged to become familiar with the Funding Guidelines before completing the application.  

If you are having any difficulty submitting the online application, please contact Lisa LaRose at
