Dear Prospective Global Ambassador
We are excited that you are considering to apply to be a Global Ambassador for Study Abroad at ECU! This exclusive, competitive placement is in its fifth year at East Carolina University, and as a Global Ambassador you will be building a legacy of internationalization on campus. As a Global Ambassador, you will be asked to complete 40 service hours over the course of the 2018-19 Academic Year. These hours can be completed in a number of ways, but here are a few examples: by participating in our events (like our Study Abroad Fair!), helping with our classroom presentations, sharing your personal study abroad experiences at our weekly information sessions, or sharing your study abroad photos and stories on our social media. The following information should aid you as you complete the attached application.
Online applications are due by midnight, August 19, 2018.
Applicants are required to be full-time degree-seeking undergraduate students who have studied abroad for at least 14 days prior to the fall 2018 semester. Global Ambassadors will be required to attend monthly meetings* throughout the academic year, with day and time to be determined. Global Ambassadors must also be able to attend a MANDATORY training at the International House on Saturday, August 25, 2018***. This training is imperative because you will learn vital information about the program and receive training crucial for performing duties as a Global Ambassador.
Selected participants will be interviewed. Applicants will be notified by email on August 20 if they are selected to interview. Interviews will be conducted August 21-23. Finalists will be notified whether they have been chosen as 2018-2019 Global Ambassadors via email on August 23, 2018.
Thank you for applying to be a Global Ambassador! We wish you the best of luck. If you have any questions during the process, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
