Interested in being an Ambassador?! Application and more details coming soon.

OUR Ambassadors are here to help you. Each of these extraordinary students has signifigant experience in undergraduate research at Virginia Tech, and represent a wide swath of disciplines in both their academic and research interests. You may meet with them through weekly office hours, which will be held once a week in Burruss Hall, suite 104N (time and day will be posted before the begining of the semester). OUR ambassadors will also have regular 'pop-up' information sessions on undergraduate research around campus throughout the semester (what it is, why you should do it, how to get involved, and how to find opportunities). Lastly, if you see that one of the ambassadors has interests that you think align with your own, reach out to them! You can do this by filling out the form found under 'contact ______' below their name and information.

All services offered by the ambassadors are free and open to the campus at large. We welcome any student from any discipline who is interested in getting involved in undergraduate research of any kind.
