Study Abroad Ambassador Program

Study Abroad Ambassador Program

 

Study Abroad Ambassadors at Texas State University are fellow bobcats who wish to share their international experiences with everyone who is interested in studying abroad. As an ambassador, you will encourage other Texas State students to study abroad and help increase international awareness throughout our campus and the San Marcos community.

Selected students will help International Affairs  in various areas including, but not limited to: the Study Abroad Fair, Ready Set Go Abroad Spring event international student events, presentations, networking opportunities, social media, peer advising and more!

Becoming a Study Abroad Ambassador will not only be an exceptional resume booster, but participants will also have the opportunity to develop several skills such as public speaking and other communication and leadership skills. Upon successful completion of the entire required hours, Study Abroad Ambassadors will receive a certificate of completion and a graduation sash from the country of their choice.
