Today we received notice that CLS is suspending all summer language institutes for 2020 in light of the U.S. Department of State Global Level 3 Health Advisory – Reconsider Travel issued on March 11. The program made this decision with the health and well-being of participants as their priority. All 2020 finalists and alternates may reapply for the 2021 CLS program.

Three Middlebury juniors were selected as finalists for the Truman Scholarship! Congratulations to Jacob Freedman ’21, Divya Gudur ’21, and Oscar Psychas ’21!

The Foundation received 773 applications from 316 colleges and universities. Finalists will be interviewed by the Foundation’s Regional Review Panels in March and April.

About the Engaged Scholarship & Social Justice (ESSJ) Undergraduate Research Conference: Started in 2015, the Engaged Scholarship & Social Justice Undergraduate Research Conference is a national conference focused solely on undergraduate research on engaged scholarship. It is a great opportunity for your students to present their research and get feedback from faculty. Students are able to engage in dialogue and get a sense of what it means to get one’s work heard beyond your own campus—especially for those interested in doctoral programs. 
Funding for Middlebury students presenting their work or attending is available through the Undergraduate Research’s Office Academic Travel Fund. See go/atf
