Frontier Market Scouts

Our Work

The Frontier Market Scouts (FMS) is a social enterprise management and impact investment certificate training and fellowship program founded in 2011 that has trained more than 300 professionals since its inception. FMS received a 2013 Cordes Innovation Award and the 2016 Cordes Innovation Hall of Fame Award from AshokaU and has now become the flagship program of the Center for Social Impact Learning (CSIL) which launched in 2014 at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. 

CSIL stands out among today’s impact-driven career programs because it’s designed to serve the full spectrum of emerging social entrepreneurs—from undergraduates to graduate students to accomplished professionals, offering them both valuable learning experiences in the social enterprise field and seamless transitions from one stage of professional development to the next. With a focus on social enterprise management and impact investing, CSIL offers world-class experiential learning opportunities including a unique career launchpad program named the Ambassador Corps, and the award-winning Frontier Market Scouts fellowship and training program.  CSIL acts as a vehicle for positive impact in communities around the world by partnering with small and growing social sector businesses and responsible investment funds seeking new talent, and then matching them with globally-minded and diversely-skilled professionals.  Visit
