The Civil Society Scholar Awards (CSSA) support international academic mobility to enable doctoral students and university faculty to access resources that enrich socially-engaged research and critical scholarship in their home country or region.
The Open Society Foundations believes in taking on controversial issues and supporting bold, innovative solutions that address root causes and advance systemic change, and also believe in encouraging critical debate and respecting diverse opinions.  Universities play a key role in advancing these aims and are a vital part of civil society.
Civil Society Scholars are selected on the basis of their outstanding contributions to research or other engagement with local communities, to furthering debates on challenging societal questions, and to strengthening critical scholarship and academic networks within their fields.
