Looking to be an Ambassador for 2019-2020?
The OUR ambassadors are the "face" of the office, representing the office at large and disseminating information about undergradaute research, the Office of Undergraduate Research, and the services we offer. OUR Ambassadors are required to host office hours up to 2 hours per week, conduct one information session or other presentation per month and help at two OUR events per semester, in addition to the Spring Undergraduate Research symposium. This is a voluntary position with no financial compensation.
Application deadline is April 19, 2019 at 5pm.
As part of this application, you will need to provide the name of someone who has knowledge of your work ethic and performance. Your listed reference will be asked to complete a brief survey and indicate whether or not they would recommend you for the position of OUR Ambassador. The deadline for references is April 22, 2019 at 5:00pm so please make sure to apply early and give your reference writer enough time to submit their comments. Your application will not be complete and therefore not be reviewed without a reference.
If you have any questions about the position or application process, please contact Nicole Easton.
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 weekely 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.
