MIIS-InterAction Scholarship: Overview

MIIS-InterAction Scholarship

With new actors and new norms emerging, the operating environment for international NGOs has changed enormously over the past 15 years. Today, international NGOs are reexamining themselves and how they work to create change. And as the community continues to evolve the demand for varied and new skills sets will increase – adding new pressures for development, humanitarian and sustainable NGO professionals to sharpen and build upon their existing knowledge bases and skills sets.

To help the NGO community meet this challenge, InterAction has forged a new partnership with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) to offer a guaranteed $25,000 scholarship to staff and members of InterAction's partner organizations who are admitted to a MIIS degree program. As part of this partnership, MIIS has also waived the application fee for staff members currently working for an InterAction member or partner organization.

The Middlebury Institute educates professionals to advance understanding, promote peace, and drive change in pursuit of a more just world. Our graduates have meaningful careers in international affairs, human security, trade and diplomacy, environmental policy.
