A Program for Edmund S. Muskie/Freedom Support Act Graduate Fellowship Program Alumni

The Support for Community Outreach and University Teaching (SCOUT) program provides follow-on support to alumni of the Edmund S. Muskie/Freedom Support Act (FSA) Graduate Fellowship Program in all fields of study from the Baltic States and the NIS. It is designed to help alumni share the benefits of their graduate study experience in the United States with their colleagues, academic and professional institutions, and the communities of their home countries.

SCOUT offers two types of support: Full-Time Teaching and Part-Time Teaching fellowships. Both provide financial, methodological, institutional, and informational support to Muskie/FSA alumni who are interested in the following activities:

  • teaching in institutions of higher education and professional training or in local communities;
  • developing projects that promote learning and exchange among students, faculty, and communities; and
  • facilitating exchange between higher education and the professional public and private sectors, governments, NGOs, and other academic and community organizations.

The SCOUT Program receives its funding from the Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States of America and is administered jointly by the Open Society Institute and the Civic Education Project. Candidates are recruited through a merit-based competition.

For more information about SCOUT, please contact your regional coordinator.
