The Baltic-American Freedom Foundation is a non-profit foundation focused on research and business.[1] Endowed by proceeds from the Baltic-American Enterprise Fund, a U.S. Government-initiated investment fund, the foundation seeks to strengthen ties between the people of the United States and the peoples of the Baltic states and is seen as a perpetual commitment of the United States to the independence, prosperity, and strength of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.[2]

The foundation provides scholarships to Baltic nationals for graduate study in the USA, internships in US companies for recent graduates and for academics to conduct independent or collaborative research projects in the U.S. The chairman of the foundation is Rozanne L. Ridgway and the foundation's President is Kim Davis.[3]
