We have conducted tunneling spectroscopy studies for isolated C_{60} molecules in the double barrier tunnel junction configuration. The tunneling current-voltage (I-V) and dI/dV vs. V spectra of these molecules exhibit rich structures resulting from both resonant tunneling through the discrete levels and single electron charging effects. In particular, we observe degeneracy lifting within the molecular orbitals, probably due to the Jahn-Teller effect and local electric fields. Theoretical fits, performed using the "orthodox" model for single-electron tunneling modified to account for the discrete level spectrum of C_{60}, agree well with our data.
