The Global Ambassador Internship Program provides an outlet for current NWC students who have studied abroad to share their experiences. It is a non-contracted paid opportunity for Global Ambassador Interns to use their enthusiasm to tell other Northwestern students about studying abroad. Ambassadors assist with coordinated events by the Global Education Center. Students with other work study commitments are still eligible to apply.
Who is a Global Ambassador?
A GA is any student who has participated in a study abroad program (semester, winter, or summer). An Ambassador is a student who is excited about his/her studying abroad experiences and wishes to be a resource for the Study Abroad Office and other interested students.
Why become a Global Ambassador?
Study Abroad Ambassadors will have the opportunity to:
1) share their experiences, stories, and excitement with other students who want to hear and learn about studying abroad;
2) build their communication and leadership skills for their resume and job applications;
3) gain experience in the International Education field.
Upon completion of the internship, participants will receive a certificate from the Global Education Center.
What is the commitment to the Global Ambassador Program?
This is a paid internship. The commitment for the program will be for one academic year, a minimum of 20 hours per semester, depending on the number of interns. To fulfill this requirement, we require participation in various study abroad events. The GEC will be flexible with scheduling work hours.
Global Ambassador Opportunities?
Study Abroad Student Ambassadors will be mentors to current students considering studying abroad. Ambassadors will participate in promotional activities conducted by the Study Abroad Office such as fairs, open houses, workshops, information sessions, class visits, meetings with students, and general outreach efforts. They will be an open and approachable resource and are expected to bring energy and inspire others to participate in study abroad programs. Ambassadors are also encouraged to develop their own activities/events.
