The Frontier Market Scouts (FMS) Program is now accepting applications for summer 2012 training and field programs! FMS selects and trains aspiring professionals who desire a career in social venture and impact investing. Jointly developed and managed by the Monterey Institute of International Studies, Sanghata Global, and Village Capital, the FMS program turns compassionate and capable young professionals into talent scouts and investment managers serving local entrepreneurs and social-minded investors in low-income and weak-capital regions of the world.
FMS is looking for passionate and pragmatic idealists who hold a strong belief in enterprise and market development as the most important means to large scale and sustainable improvement of living standards in developing countries. The ideal Frontier Market Scout also has a solid background in business and management, and a superb aptitude for immersive learning in dramatically different environments. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalence. A limited number of training scholarships, including full scholarships, are available for highly-qualified applications.
Interested June-December 2012 fellows should apply online at http://go.miis.edu/fmsapp by April 1, 2012. For more information visit http://www.fmscouts.org or contact Carolyn Taylor Meyer at (831) 647-6417.
