The Overseas Ambassador Program is a initiative created for currently students or recent graduates who are planning to study, intern, volunteer or teach abroad. The Overseas Ambassadors will serve as an overseas correspondent, sharing their experiences to motivate other members of the DiversityAbroad.com community to go abroad. By writing insightful articles, sharing inspiring videos and pictures about your new surroundings, cross-cultural observations and personal growth, your words will inspire other diverse students to go abroad and challenge them to rethink how study abroad experiences can be for everyone.
Represent DiversityAbroad.com for the duration of your program overseas (Fall or Spring semester programs only)
Document your experience with photos and videos via the DiversityAbroad.com
Write at least one article every two weeks on a topic related to education abroad and your identity, location and career/field of study.
