Scott received a BA (1990) in International Relations at the School for International Service at the American University in Washington, D.C. While an undergraduate he studied in Santiago (Chile), Lagos (Nigeria), and Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), the latter two through the School for International Training (Brattleboro, VT). Scott also worked in Ghana and the Kingdom of Lesotho monitoring human rights abuses resulting from the Lesotho Highlands Water Project. Scott later earned a MDiv (1999) at the University of Chicago and Chicago Theological Seminary. In 1999, Scott moved to the Republic of South Africa serving as an ordained minister of several rural Zulu congregations. While serving in Groutville, South Africa, Scott ministered at the Congregational home church of Chief Albert Luthuli. Inspired by Luthuli, Scott researched his life and politics thus earning a PhD from the findings. His dissertation morphed into the first and only substantive biography of Luthuli.
