We will notify you about the success of your application by October 11th. Interviews will take place at 118 South Main across the 12th and 13th of October.

We will not accommodate other interview dates or times. Final decisions will be released on October 15th, 2017.

Access to funding is contingent upon satisfactory completion of these requirements. Please be aware that the SE Fellowship and ChangeMaker program is seen as a commitment CONCURRENT WITH academics, and your responsibilities as a Fellow or ChangeMaker will continue till you graduate from Middlebury in good standing.
