Scott Family Liberia Fellows
The Scott Family Fellows program recruited young professionals to support the government of Liberia as it recovered from 14 years of brutal civil war. The fellows filled a critical capacity gap and worked in Liberia as "special assistants" to senior Liberian government officials, primarily cabinet ministers. The program put a special emphasis on encouraging qualified Liberians to apply. The fellows worked long hours with the goal of helping Liberia in its urgent reconstruction and development efforts.
