Becoming an Ambassador
Are you passionate about undergraduate research? Want to share that passion with other students?
The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is accepting applications for its Ambassador program. This program helps to build student leadership skills and resumes, while providing crucial service to the OUR.
The OUR ambassadors are the "face" of the office, disseminating information about undergraduate research and the OUR and facilitating key services offered by the office. Students get a unique networking experience, interacting with faculty, administrators, and prospective research students.
Ideal candidates have undergraduate research experience in any discipline and must be reliable, organized, personable, respectful, and exhibit excellent communication skills. OUR Ambassadors are required to host office hours for up to two hours per week, conduct one information session or other presentation per month and help at two OUR events per semester, in addition to the annual Spring Undergraduate Research symposium. Anticipated time commitment is 2-5 hours per week. This is a voluntary program; there is no financial compensation.
We consider applications on a rolling basis. Students reaching the next phase of the process will be invited for an interview.
