Graduate Ambassador Program

SEAS Graduate Ambassador Program

The SEAS Graduate Ambassador program recruits current and incoming graduate students to play pivotal roles in leadership by building and facilitating a community at SEAS. Graduate Ambassadors engage with new and current graduate students, as well as participate in activities to encourage research awareness and innovation within SEAS.

Graduate Ambassadors serve one-year terms and are given leadership training prior to assuming duties. In addition, they host orientation events, student activities and outing, and work alongside SEAS faculty and staff in recruiting new students by attending events and contributing to social media efforts.


  • All degree levels and fields of study within SEAS may apply
  • Open to domestic and international students
  • Strong academic background
    • For current students: You must be in good academic standing (3.0 GPA or higher, no holds on account)
    • For incoming students: This will be determined by your undergraduate transcripts.
  • Experience hosting student activities and managing large events
  • A GRE verbal score in the 40th percentile or higher at the time of admission (for incoming students only)
  • For international students: 100 on the TOEFL or 7.0 overall on the IELTS at the time of admission (for current and incoming students).

Duration and compensation

Graduate Ambassadors work for one academic year on a part-time basis (20 hours per week) and are compensated through a $1,000 stipend + $15 per hour wage.

The 20 hours per week may be distributed in various ways, including (but not limited to): working in our offices in the Science and Engineering Hall; attending recruiting and outreach events with admissions officers; hosting events for current and prospective students; attending occasional events on weekends with staff and other students.
