As the Monterey Institute's Frontier Market Scouts program continues to develop and grow in scope, so does its appeal. This June, 43 people with very different backgrounds participated in the summer training and are off to placements in 15 countries ranging from two to six months. The group consists of seven Monterey Institute students, 32 professionals from various fields such as medicine, engineering and investment banking, as well as two Harvard undergraduates and one from Northeastern University.
The residence of Samira Rahmatullah and Munir Alam (Midd’99) in Hillsborough served as a lovely backdrop for a casual salon gathering of 20. The evening was energized with conversations surrounding the Frontier Market Scouts program and multiple cross connections were discovered.
The unique Frontier Market Scouts® program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies has won the Ashoka U - Cordes Innovation Award, given to innovative university programs focused on promoting social entrepreneurship.
