UNIVERSITY PARK, PA – Applications are now being accepted for the Undergraduate Research Ambassador Program, which aims to promote undergraduate research on all campuses and across all academic disciplines at Penn State.
Organized by Undergraduate Research and Fellowships Mentoring, the Ambassador Program is a volunteer opportunity for undergraduate students passionate about promoting undergraduate research at Penn State and helping others find their way.
Ambassadors will receive training in the fall semester so they are prepared to participate in panel discussions and events, visit classrooms and student organizations, and meet one-on-one with other undergraduates to help them get involved in research on their home campus throughout the spring semester. The program offers students the opportunity to gain mentoring experience if they haven’t already had the opportunity, as well as to develop their communication and presentation skills.
Students interested in becoming ambassadors for the 2021-22 school year should visit urfm.psu.edu for more information and to find a link to the app. Applications are encouraged from all campuses and fields of study. The deadline to apply is August 31st.
Undergraduate research and scholarship mentoring is part of the Penn State Office of Undergraduate Education, the academic administrative unit that provides leadership and coordination of university-wide programs and initiatives in support of undergraduate teaching and learning at Penn State.
