Global Ambassadors are students who may have previously studied abroad or are interested in the possibility of study abroad.
They promote education abroad through presentations, on-campus events and walk-in peer advising in the Office of International Affairs. During these presentations, they help students understand the initial steps to make an education abroad experience a reality.
They receive training on general information for study abroad, the application process, scholarships and awards for study abroad. They also learn to give classroom presentations using the Study Abroad 101 PowerPoint presentation.
In return for one academic year of service to the college community, they are eligible to receive scholarship money (up to $500.00) for study abroad in a Penn State program of their choice.
